Erato Ensemble presents HOMEGROWN: 10th Anniversary Celebration Concert
Since its inception in 2006, Erato Ensemble has premiered over 75 new works, most by Vancouver-based composers. On July 8 they will celebrate this citys diverse and exceptional talent by revisiting some of their favourite works composed specially for them.
In addition to the encore performances, Erato will premiere a brand new work by Michael Park. The Knitting Club involves not only the entire ensemble, but the audience as well! Listeners are invited to bring their knitting and join in the celebration as the piece unfolds. There will also be an opportunity to purchase items knitted by Eratos own avid knitting musicians! Dont know how to knit? Come early for a pre-show knitting lesson!
Homegrown also serves as a fundraiser for Eratos 2017-18 season. Tickets will be by donation at the door. Help us put the FUN in fundraiser - pay what you can and party with us as we celebrate our anniversary and honour Vancouvers talented composers and musicians. Drinks will be available at the cash bar.
Erato Ensemble, named for the Greek muse of poetry (not because they make a lot of mistakes!), consists of highly-skilled musicians who enjoy playing newer chamber music that remains enlightening, enlivening and sometimes challenging but always melodic and entertaining. Formed in 2006, Erato continues to be Vancouvers premier art-song chamber ensemble. All are skilled, professional musicians, who also perform with other top ensembles, including Vancouver Symphony, musica intima, Vancouver Chamber Choir, Ethos, Blueridge Chamber Festival, Vancouver Island Symphony, and the rock band Horse Opera. Several of the musicians are also well-respected composers. Erato is an affiliate ensemble of the Canadian Music Centre.
