Cutting-edge chamber ensemble Standing Wave is celebrating its thirty-first year of audacious music-making! Comprising six of Vancouver’s most sought-after musical multitaskers, from improvisers to orchestral players, the group has performed extensively, released four albums, and commissioned over 100 new works by many of Canada’s most visionary composers. For the fifth concert of GroundSwell’s 2021-22 season, Standing Wave will present a bold program of new and recently commissioned pieces for ensemble, interactive electronics and video, including works by Bekah Simms, Nancy Tam, Gordon Fitzell and others. Included will be world premieres by emerging Manitoba composers Kiara Nathaniel and Rebecca Schroeder*.
