December 2, 3 and 4th, 2011 will see the premiere performances of Shadow Catch: a new chamber opera featuring music by Dorothy Chang, T. Benton Roark, Jennifer Butler and Farshid Samandari. Set in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, a young runaway spends the night in Oppenheimer Park, and is visited by the spirits who inhabit it. Shadow Catch features an amazing cast of singers and truly wonderful and moving music — I’m honoured to be one of the three instrumental performers for this event. If you are in the Vancouver area, come see what has to be one of the most innovative projects I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of. Check out the Shadow Catch blog to learn more.
Powell Street Festival taiko finale!
My first indoor concert in I-don’t-know-how-long with REAL LIVE HUMANS in the audience. What a joy it was to play gorgeous new works by #FarshidSamandari, #MosheDenburg, and #AlicePingYeeHo with @soundofdragon again.
Gird your loins, Kitsilano: Pride Ninja is ready to… uhh, do the grocery shopping. Beautiful #pride mask made by my former student, the multitalented @alanna.mich.
