song room tribute
On October 27 at Pyatt Hall in downtown Vancouver, join Standing Wave for our tribute to one of Vancouver's hippest ongoing underground events, song room. Created by Karen Matthews, Dave Pay, and the late, great writer, impresario, and philanthropist Tom Cone, song room evenings have been a collaborative testing ground for composers, writers, and musicians since 2005 - a salon for new song collaborations. Our concert will feature 'song room suite', comprised of new works by four composer/writer teams, as well as the world premiere of Kati Agócs, 'Crystalography', based on poetry by Christian Bök. The 1972 Minimalist classic 'Coming Together' by Frederic Rzewski with texts by Sam Melville, and Bradshaw Pack's dreamy 2001 opus 'palladia', will round out the program.
MUSIC BY Kati Agócs, AK Coope, Peggy Lee, Bradshaw Pack, Frederic Rzewski, and Leslie Uyeda
WORDS BY Peter Anderson, Christian Bök, Camille Gingras, Sam Melville and Rachel Rose
PERFORMED BY Standing Wave with special guests John Arsenault, Andrew Braun, Robyn Driedger-Klassen, Veda Hille and Richard Newman, with a cameo appearance by Ron Samworth
