For our concert on December 11th, Trio d’Argento will be joined onstage by Barbara Croall.
A bit about Ms. Croall from her website:
“Born in 1966, Odawa composer Barbara Croall (Manitoulin Island, Kineu Dodem) is active internationally, with works performed in several European countries, Britain, the United States, and Canada over the past several years. Apart from playing, performing and composing on traditional Native flutes and singing in traditional ceremonies, Barbara is also trained classically. She is a graduate of the Musikhochschule in Munich, Germany and also holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Composition from the University of Toronto, where she was the recipient of the Glenn Gould Award in Composition (1989).”
Trio d’Argento and Barbara Croall will be performing Manidoog (Spirits/spirit beings), a piece commissioned by the Ontario Arts Council. This piece combines spoken word/storytelling with music.
