The GroundSwell House Concert is a new pilot initiative for 2018-19. So far, we’ve sponsored local composers and performers to help them get their ideas out in the world. GroundSwell House Concerts are informal gatherings and recitals–an opportunity for performance, listening and discussion. It’s a great way to get up-close to new music with like-minded folks. Let us know if you have a project in the works!
House Concert #1: SOUNDYARD!
GroundSwell’s first house concert on November 23, 2018 was a great success thanks to the efforts of Ben Sellick and SoundYard. Also, big thanks to Elroy Friesen for the use of his beautiful home, and to the performers: Dexter Artates, Naomi Derksen, Bery Filsaime, Nathaniel Froese, Thomas Roberts, and Ben Sellick.
House Concert #2: SOLUS!
We were so pleased to sponsor local clarinetist extraordinaire, Amanda Forest, in Solus on April 13, 2019. The night was filled with premieres of new music, with works by: Leslie Basset, Chris Byman, George N. Gianopoulos, Andrew Noseworthy, Michelle Pegus, and Willyn Whiting. Congratulations to all involved!
