ON THE ROAD | continued from page 9on June 22 that will create a meeting place for early music and the digitalworld! ...The opera project Motezuma with Ensemble Caprice will be thehighlight. It has evolved into a new genre of baroque opera where therecitatives are replaced by a narration that is accompanied by freshlycomposed contemporary music. Can’t wait!”Laurie Evan Fraser, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, UPPER CANADA CHORISTERS“I am in the midst of finalizing plans for the 20thanniversary concert of the Upper Canada Choristersin May 2014. We have commissioned StephenHatfield to write a cross-cultural composition forus to sing with the main choir and Cantemos, ourLatin chamber ensemble ... looking forward toattending events at the Toronto Summer MusicFestival. I am especially drawn to chamber music,and one of my favourite chamber ensembles, the Gryphon Trio, will beperforming at Koerner Hall on July 18. I will be doing some long rangeplanning for the next five years culminating in a choir trip to Japan in2019. Summer is also my time to compose, and I am looking forward tosetting a poem written by one of our Cantemos members.”Adam Fisher, TENOR“I’m not really being taken away [from music]’cause it never really stops, there’s always musicplaying in my house! As I write this my computeris playing a mix of new albums from Daft Punk,The National and Tesseract. Plus the classical musicI’m working on for the fall! I’m currently workingon Pedrillo for Opera Atelier’s Abduction from theSeraglio and Britten’s Serenade for Tenor and Hornwith Ottawa’s Thirteen Strings Ensemble. Part ofbeing an opera singer is that you’re always growing and learning as aperformer and artist. I’m always working on something, my voice, mybody or my brain. It takes complete dedication to do this for a livingand I relish every minute of it!”Brian Current, COMPOSER & CONDUCTOR“Excited to be composing a new piece for theToronto Symphony for their 2014 New CreationsFestival. It’s a big, deep-dark work for full orchestralforces with tons of forceful gestures anddetailed texture ... I’m compiling the audio fora disc of Airline Icarus to be released by NaxosCanadian Classics. Also planning next year’s newmusic season at The Royal Conservatory, wherethere will be a brand new festival of contemporary music in May, plusa concert called “Beyond the Sound of Music,” which explores musicaccompanied by video, including a world premiere by Nicole Lizée.Mark your calendars for April 10!”Lina Allemano, JAZZ TRUMPETER & COMPOSER“Trumpet-wise, I’m currently working onhoning my circular breathing, and I’m alsoworking on the solo trumpet part from thebeginning of Henry Cowell’s stunning pieceSynchrony ... I’m really looking forward tohearing German trumpeter/improviser AxelDörner play in various different settings inJune–I’m heading to Berlin to study with him,listen to him play, and also to play a couple gigs myself ... I’ll bewriting new music for my long-time band Lina Allemano Four inpreparation for our upcoming tours to the US and Europe. It’s niceto have the motivation of a couple of important tours looming in thenot-so-distant future to get the creative juices flowing.”Kevin Mallon, CONDUCTOR“Since I am conducting in two opera festivals inthe summer, my main experiences as an audiencemember will be to hear the other operas beingproduced (the ones I am not conducting) — GianniSchicchi by Puccini in Italy and Poulenc’s LesDialogues des Carmélites and Sondheim’s A LittleNight Music in Halifax. On June 11 I travel to Irelandto visit my family and then on June 17 I fly to Italy toconduct Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito at the Centrefor Opera Studies in Italy (COSI) ... Aradia going to Italy is a fun andimportant experience for the players, and I appreciate the continuedrepertoire we are able to explore together. The long-term plan is toproduce one of the operas we do in Italy in our Toronto season.”Mireille Asselin, SOPRANO“Currently I’m in the midst of packing for whatwill essentially be ten months on the road — yes,this is as daunting as it sounds! And in betweensuitcases I’m fitting in as much score study formy summer projects as possible, which includesCharpentier’s La descente d’Orphée aux enfersand Verdi’s Falstaff ... I’m presently plotting myrepertoire choices for the Wigmore InternationalSong Competition, which will be in August and September 2013 inLondon. I’m also starting to take a look at the new English libretto thatI need to prepare for my first ever contract at the Metropolitan Opera,where I’ll be covering Adele in Die Fledermaus next season.”Justin Gray, Andrew kay, Jonathan Kay, MONSOON TRIO“Since living with our North Indianraga music Guru, Pandit ShantanuBhattacharyya, in Kolkata for the past fouryears, we have experienced not only whatit means to play music, but also to “live”music. During our travels around India,we have played music at the snow peaksof the Himalayas and all the way to the ancient Hindu temples of theSouth. Being among the first students of raga music to receive traditionaltraining to play the ragas of North India on our western instruments,we will return home to Canada to record our first traditional raga musicalbum ... We also are recording our Indo-Jazz ensemble, Monsoon, aproject that is the culmination of the past eight years of experience inthe realm of creating original music inspired by Indian classical musicand creative Western music.”Jamie Thompson, FLUTIST“Just this week, along with members of theJunction Trio, we wrapped up our fourthseason of Post-Industrial concerts at the fabulousSt. Anne’s Church in Toronto’s west end.The trio has moved in a decidedly collaborative,multi-disciplinary direction, featuring as manyas 15 performers including liquid light projectionistsand movement artists from Toronto’sPlastique Animée Ensemble ... I will be collaborating in a vocalperformance at Toronto’s Heliconian Hall with the CabbagetownClassical Youth Choir, and with my trio we will be re-mountinga recent program, “Exploring the Acoustic World of The Group ofSeven,” as part of ASK, an annual arts festival up in King City. Inaddition, I will be attending the first ever Canadian Flute Conventionas both a presenter and performer.”MUSICIANS, CONCERT PRESENTERS AND MUSIC LOVERS:DO YOU TWEET?
