I Rise

A collaboration between Calgary Phil and pink flamingo

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.

This month, we are joined by Sinzere!

Sinzere is a Rap/Soul artist from Calgary, Canada. For her, music serves as a vessel she uses to inspire people through her cutting-edge lyrics, and deep cinematic sound. Sinzere is inspired by many different styles of music, everything from Queen Latifah, Notorious BIG and Jay-Z, to James Brown, and Canadian rap royalty, Drake. With an immense appreciation and diverse ear for music, Sinzere is intent on building something that is completely her own, yet also pays homage to the golden era of Hip Hop.

Sinzere is transparent with her listeners - her music is raw, gritty and created with the intent to inspire her fans. Her lyrics are witty and go against the grain, she stays true to the idea that storytelling comes from the heart.

She's an absolute force to be reckoned with on stage, named Sled Island Music Festivals Spotlight Artist in 2019. Sinzere has opened up for Hip-Hop royalty such as, Rakim, KRS-ONE, Raekwon, Rick Ross, and Cordae to name a few. The highlight of her performance career however, was sharing the stage with artists such as Manilla Grey and Grandtheft at the 2021 Badlands Music Festival.
