Event

Wild
The centrepiece of the concert is an excerpt from work-in-progress, Wild Dogs, a new one-act chamber opera based on Helen Humphreys novel of the same name.  Wild Dogs, with music by Anna Pidgorna and libretto by Val Brandt, is being commissioned and developed by Standing Wave in partnership with Robert Careys black bachx opera in cooperation with Music on Main.  

The story tells of a group of strangers who gather at the edge of a field to call their dogs who have joined a feral pack in the woods.  Lily, a brain-damaged young woman dares to enter the woods alone to find her only friend  her dog.

In addition to the excerpt of Wild Dogs, Standing Wave will perform Difficult Bamboo by Mason Bates, which is described by Chicago Tribunes John van Rhein as a jumpy, high-energy conversation for marimba, Thai gongs and toy drums, overlaid with popping electronica [] the dislocated rhythms, slashing chords and bent tunings of a strings-winds-piano-and-percussion sextet as an alien bamboo plant invading and ruining a sylvan landscape.  Other highlights of the program will be the premiere of an arrangement by Cameron Wilson as part of the ensembles 20C Remix series, and Techno Parade, a virtuosic tour de force for flute, clarinet, and piano by Guillaume Connesson.
