The brainchild of conductor Michelle Mourre and composer Michael Oesterle, the ensemble brings together ten of Canada’s finest string and wind players. In addition to commissioning new works, The Phoenix Collective works closely with leading composer to re-envision and re-purpose the great repertoire of the past in a contemporary aesthetic.
You’ll hear re-imaginings of Schubert and Barber by Michael Oesterle, and of Machaut by Michael Matthews, alongside works by Stravinsky and Vincent Ho.
Manitoba-born Hugh Russell will lead us along Barber’s Dover Beach and through songs by Schubert. Witness the arrival of an ensemble you’ll want to hear again and again!
