City of Fredericton ~ 2009 Cultural Capital of Canada
Atlantic Sinfonia presents:
A Musical Legacy: A Celebration of Fredericton Composers
The City of Fredericton, designated as a national Cultural Capital of Canada for 2009, has a rich history of music making, stretching back over two centuries. It has been the home of a number of talented composers who have contributed to both Fredericton’s and the nation’s musical heritage. Atlantic Sinfonia is staging a year-long project to celebrate their legacy.
The project, A Musical Legacy: A Celebration of Fredericton Composers will highlight the work of Fredericton and area composers over time in a series of performances, featuring Fredericton’s own professional chamber ensemble, Atlantic Sinfonia, and a hand-picked Fredericton choir.
Among composers featured will be include Bishop John Medley, Stephen Humbert, Alexander Ewing, Robin Bayley, Janis Kalnins, Michael Miller and several others from the region.
