Throughout this concert’s musical and poetic journey under the direction of Dina Gilbert, we listen to the multiple, timeless, and unusual voices of women artists, performed by an entirely female roster. Canadian composers Ana Sokolović, Alexina Louie, and Barbara Croall are featured alongside French composer Lili Boulanger and English composer Elizabeth Maconchy in a selection of works anchored in diversity, featuring throat singing, violin, flute, and orchestra. Weaving a narrative swathed in the colours of the tundra, Innu poet Joséphine Bacon gives a reading of her poetry on the themes of night, the seasons, and the cycle of life. With sensitivity, wisdom and creativity, this event creates a valuable space for dialogue between cultures, eras, and languages.
