Plasma Waves and Fireflies

What do Persian folk music, Lake of the Woods and the Voyager spacecraft have in common? They’ll all be cheek-a-jowl in Plasma Waves and Fireflies, an exciting and dynamic evening of new chamber music for brass quintet and percussion. Northern Brassworks is Chris Fensom and Richard Gillis, trumpets; Patricia Evans, horn; Keith Dryda, trombone and Isabelle Lavoie, bass trombone – five of Winnipeg’s finest. They team up with new music mallets master Victoria Sparks for this concert of Manitoba and Canadian composers– a wide-ranging program including four world premieres: Three Imaginary Persian Dances by David Braid, Plasma Wave Investigations by Richard Gillis, Lucioles by Jim Hiscott and a brand new work by Tetyana Haraschuk. Also recent music by Sarah Scott Turner, Andrew Balfour, Sid Robinovitch and more.
