Our season finale has been years in the making: the premiere of a new major work about Indigenous water sovereignty from Cree cellist and composer Cris Derksen, preceded by an immersive outdoor prelude performance.
Choir members will be scattered throughout the beautiful grounds of Toronto Botanical Garden while concert goers stroll through experiencing pockets of song. The Songwalk will culminate with the full choir and band performing the world premiere of the new work on the outdoor stage.
In the case of rain, the performance will take place at Jubilee United Church.
Special Guest: Cris Derksen
Juno nominated Cris Derksen is an internationally respected Indigenous cellist and composer. Her work with the Amadeus Choir is a 30-minute major work for choir, hand drum singers, cello, French horn, piano, and drums about the inequalities of access to clean water in Canada.
