Sinzere gears up to perform in Edmonton for Road to the JUNOS!
A collaboration between the Calgary Phil and Pink Flamingo on the Black Lives Matter Murals Project invited two vastly different artistic cultures to collide. Five artists were invited to respond to a new Calgary Phil commission by Canadian composer Laura Hawley, written for our Chorus and based on L.R. Knost’s poem I Rise. We celebrate the results with the debut of this new work in a performance led by conductor Leslie B. Dunner, accompanied by the mural artwork, and music by Duke Ellington and Florence Price. Uyemi and Sinzere join us for John Legend and Common’s hit Glory from Selma.
Presented in partnership with Pink Flamingo. Program and artists are subject to change without notice.
