Lloyd Burritt premieres three new works for the voice at Songfire fest

"Vancouver International Song Institute (VISI) presents Songfire Festival of Song until June 24 at various locations. For complete schedule visit www.songinstitute.ca.

A West Vancouver composer has transformed the poetry of one of his closest friends into music, a labour of love that touched him "very closely in the heart."

"I'm very emotionally attached to this piece because it's my story," says Lloyd Burritt. "It's about the love of two human beings, two men."

Burritt's Image-Nation Cycle for tenor, French horn and piano will premiere Sunday, June 10 at 8 p.m. at West Vancouver United Church. The song is one of three new works from Burritt being performed at the Songfire Festival of Song..."
