The Canadian Women Composers' Project

Carmen Braden / Black Ice Sound presents the Canadian Women Composers Project with soprano Clarisse Tonigussi May 17 2018 Local Yellowknife music company Black Ice Sound presents the second concert of its spring 2018 series. The Canadian Women Composers Project is dedicated to bringing greater awareness of vocal music by Canadian women composers to Canadian audiences. A national tour in 2017/18 brings Toronto soprano Clarisse Tonigussi across the country, accompanied by local pianists in each performance. The composers that have been chosen for the recital include multiaward winner Ana Sokolović, Jean Coulthard, WCMA-nominated local musician Carmen Braden and emerging composer Rebekah *******s alongside many others. Not only does this project highlight Canadian women’s music, but it also showcases other Canadian female artists. Much of the poetry for the music was written by Canadian female poets including Madeleine Guimont, Beatrice Redpath, and E. Pauline Johnson. A Canadian female designer, Carly ***pson, has created the beautiful gown that is to be worn for every recital, and the musicians who are performing the recitals are also women. It is a celebration of women in Canada by having women perform great works by women! Featuring Clarisse Tonigussi - Soprano with Carmen Braden, Mary Kelly and Deanna Roos, piano. 3pm, Saturday May 26th 2018 Museum Café, Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre $15 adult / $10 student+senior For more information contact: Carmen Braden (Black Ice Sound) carmen@blackicesound.com 867-445-8607 blackicesound.com https://www.facebook.com/events/640437543016207/ Follow The CWC Project facebook.com/TheCWCProject twitter.com/TheCWCProject instagram.com/TheCWCProject www.canadianwomencomposersproject.com
