Music Comes to Life through the Artist’s Paintbrush

Imagine a concert where you could see the music as it was performed! The U of L Wind Orchestra brings music to life both aurally and visually on Nov. 30 at 8 pm at Southminster United Church. Their concert, Prisms, features a rich program of beautiful melodies combined with real-time visuals painted by abstract artist and U of L student, Genevieve Ahart.

Joined onstage by the U of L Brass Choir, the U of L Wind Orchestra also introduces audiences to their new conductor, Wendy Freeman. “Our concert entitled Prisms features works that seem to aurally capture spectral reflections of light and colour,” says Freeman. “Artist, Genevieve Ahart will create visual art pieces, visually shaping the soundscape, in tandem with the performance of musical selections by Percy Grainger, Jacques Hetu, Ron Nelson and Morten Lauridsen.”

Tickets are available at the U of L Box Office, Monday – Friday, 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm, or by calling (403) 329-2616. Regular tickets are also available online, Tickets are $15 regular, $10 for students, seniors/children.
