A Gossamer Bit: CONTACT Contemporary Music

June 27, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

In partnership with Redshift.

Tickets $30/$15 concession

A Gossamer Bit celebrates the longstanding association between the Toronto based ensemble Contact and lesbian composer Allison Cameron. A kaleidoscopic fusion of elements as disparate as minimalism, avant-garde jazz and Charles Ives, Cameron’s music is spacious, introspective and hypnotic. Released on CD in May 2015 on the Vancouver label Redshift Records, A Gossamer Bit is an immersive exploration of Cameron’s diverse output. This concert program also features works by Ann Southam, Julius Eastman, Jerry Pergolesi, and John Cage.
