Notes de programme :
Begin is a 7’ composition written for SSA a capella girl choir. Based on a poem “Begin” by Toronto writer Tanis Rideout, the music describes an imaginary journey of Marilyn Bell and Shirley Campbell, two long distance swimmers who tried to swim Lake Ontario in the 1950's. Campbell was unsuccessful and Bell became a legendary figure. Music sails through the geological landscape of Lake Ontario, expresses in a poetic way how nature and history defines the relationship we have with water: the tides that push us together, also pull us apart. Some theatre elements such as making sound effects, movement, body percussion, and “rapping” of swim terminology are integrated in the music, highlighting the drama of the text. Written especially for Oakville Choir for Children and youth, this composition conveys an empowering message how two different young women faced and conquered huge challenge with strength, intelligence, perseverance, and courage.This work is commissioned by Choral Canada for Oakville Choir for Children and Youth with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, New Chapter Canada 150 Grant
