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.
