Join us for an intimate gathering with Continuum and the composers of Urgent Voices including James Rolfe, and Scott Wilson. Both composers have been working with poets (Stephen Heighton, Alexandra Oliver, and Phoebe Tsang) on song cycles exploring a variety of Canadian themes: climate and culture change in the arctic archipelago, the diaries of William Lyon Mackenzie King, and the experiences of Canadian veterans. We will host a discussion that explores narrative as a medium, and writing for voice, and hear excerpts of the pieces that Continuum will be performing on December 8 and 9.

*The Canadian Music Centre is an accessible venue through a street level entrance to the right of the main entrance. The CMC has gender neutral washrooms.
