    ×Prairie Debut - Ladom Ensemble

    Ladom Ensemble is the best example of musical integration that defines this country. Drawing from Persian, Balkan, South American, and Turkish music, these four musicians effortlessly integrate these musical genres and blend them into a contemporary classical framework. Ladom Ensemble engages the audience through their energetic performances, mingled with the musician’s cultural and musical stories that furthers the audiences overall experience. With a unique combination of instruments consisting of accordion, world percussion, cello, and piano, they create a distinct yet accessible sound that will be a memorable performance for all ages. Original compositions such as Raha, Noor, and Veles I & II represent the ensemble’s vast musical works of Middle Eastern persuasion, while their own arrangement of Brahms’s Hungarian Rhapsody, Piazzolla’s Libertango, and even Weird Fishes by Radiohead, gives familiar works a refreshed musical diversity to share.

In concert, JUNO-nominee James is “a dazzling live performer with a genial, low-key sense of humour” (Edmonton Journal) and Anne brings her “gorgeous syrupy voice” (Acoustic Magazine) to songs that are “inventive, entertaining, beautifully written and brilliantly performed” (R2 Magazine).

  • A Prairie Boy's LifeA Prairie Boy's Life
    ×A Prairie Boy's Life

    A Prairie Boy’s Life is an entertaining evening of Canadian song featuring John Greer’s recently composed work “A Prairie Boy’s Life”, which draws its inspiration from William Kurelek’s writings and paintings. The music is scored for vocal quartet and four-hand piano, and while it harkens back in feeling to the music of the Romantic salon, it is also filled with contemporary references. Snowstorms, softball, prairie crocuses, and an ecstatic chorus of mosquitoes are all brought to life with projected images of Kurelek’s renowned paintings as the back drop. Both moving and humorous, this performance features some of Canada’s most engaging and compelling singers and pianists.  The performers, including Tracy Dahl, Monica Huisman, Rose van der Hooft, Jamie McLennan, Mel Braun, Laura Loewen, and John Greer are also available to give a pre-concert presentation about the work, or to run masterclasses/private sessions for singers and/or pianists.
