A few things from the in box that might interest readers:
So what do you get when you mash up contemporary classical music, experimental electronic music, staging, art installations and other stuff? That’s what FAWN’s Convergence Theory concerts are about. There’s one at Victory Social Club on January 25th. Details are here. To quote Artistic Director Amanda Smith “As much as Convergence Theory is about exposing more people to new, Canadian classical music, it is also my intention for classical audiences to be introduced to the exciting and plentiful artists of Toronto’s underground experimental electronic music scene. This way we can celebrate the parallels, as well as the individualities of both genres.”
The COC’s Season Reveal has been announced for February 10th. It seems to be a media/invitation event this year. (I really have a hard time keeping up with the changing formats of these things!) . Anyway there’ll be lots of uninformed speculation in the lead up as usual.
The COC has also announced a series of its Opera Insights free events. These are sort of edutainment evenings and are free but ticketed. Details here.
Iain Scott has more educational courses and a Glimmerglass tour for the summer.
