Noon Hour Concert: Root SystemsExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, November 13, 2019 — 12:30 PM EST

Park SoundsPark Sounds is a new duo comprised of Manitoba-raised, Montreal-based musicians Jennifer Thiessen (viola, viola d’amore) and Ben Reimer (percussion). Both members of Park Sounds are rooted in the Manitoba classical, pop and new music communities, while branching out through musical life in Montréal, and becoming central figures of the larger Canadian music scene. Their debut program, Root Systems, is inspired by a diagram of the deep root systems of prairie plants and explores themes of origin, belonging and culture. It includes existing works by Luciano Berio and Tigran Mansurian, an arrangement of the late Greg Lowe’s Letting Go, and four new Canadian pieces by Karen Sunabacka, Michael Matthews, Marielle Groven and Daniel Morphy.  Dr. Karen Sunabacka is the Music Theory professor at Conrad Grebel University College.
