Laura Sgroi: We’re Not Done Drumming, Co-commission with Symphony Nova Scotia Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante Haydn: Symphony No. 101 in D major, The Clock
Delightful works by Mozart and Haydn make up the Classical portion of this program. Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante features four KWS musicians and bursts with the joy of exploring new instrumental sound combinations and possibilities of his time. For the “beyond”, the KWS is joined by Mi’kmaw poet and one of the foremost female indigenous voices in Canada, Rebecca Thomas, for a powerful performance of her collaboration with composer Laura Sgroi entitled We’re Not Done Drumming.
