    Electric Messiah IV begins TOMORROW NIGHT and continues Wednesday and Thursday at “The Drake Underground.”

    This year’s Electric Messiah is as eclectic as it is electric. If you think you’ve seen it all before, then you need to come again! Experience arias in Hebrew and Gaelic, a special appearance from a Swedish nyckelharpa, plus a touch of jazz in this year’s edition.

    The vocal landscape is refreshed annually and this year’s cast features: Dora award-winning tenor, Jonathan MacArthur returns for his second electric season. Juno nominee Aviva Chernick, “a fearless musical adventurer,” (CBC) also joins the cast. Soprano Katherine Hill, with a background in early, traditional and new music will add new vocal colours to the show as will Jazz vocalist Alex Samaras, known as a ‘singers’ singer.’ Backed by a stellar musical ensemble, under the musical direction of Adam Scime, Electric Messiah IV promises to be more than you can handle!

    From SoundStreams: “Ensemble Soundstreams Seduces Shanghai” 

    From SoundStreams

    1

    Soundstreams visited China in September as Artists-in-Residence at the invitation of the Shanghai New Music Week, one of two major festivals of contemporary music in China. Having performed at the Beijing Modern Music Festival in 2013, Soundstreams was really delighted by this invitation.

    “Significant Canadian music and performers were heard for the first time ever in this festival’s history,” explained Lawrence Cherney, Soundstreams’ Artistic Director. “It also ushered in a new era of co-operation as we exchange young composers through our respective Emerging Composers’ Workshop programs. Forging ever stronger cultural links with China is our goal.”

    William Littler, who covered the tour for the Toronto Star reported, “The Torontonians kept good company in Shanghai, appearing alongside international-class colleagues from Paris, Amsterdam, and Athens, performing before overwhelmingly young audiences, and to Soundstreams fell the particular responsibility of representing North American music, presenting works by three Canadians, R. Murray Schafer, Nicole Lizée and Juliet Palmer, and two Americans, John Cage and Steve Reich.”

    Darren Creech
    An innovative artist, queer classical pianist Darren Creech “shows his belief in a new potential for the classical concert stage” (CBC Music). His multidisciplinary approach to the classical stage subverts expectations and takes his diverse audiences on an emotional and immersive journey. Darren was the Keynote Performer at McGill University’s Music Graduate Symposium and was awarded the Best Artist Prize at Toronto’s Nuit Rose.

    Explore a diversity of techniques and approaches for 88 keys in Key Encounters!

    A musical chameleon, the piano is classified as both a percussion and string instrument. Join us on October 1 at the Gladstone Hotel as we explore a diversity of techniques and approaches for 88 keys in Key Encounters, with guests master percussionist Russell Hartenberger and classical pianist Darren Creech.

    Hartenberger will discuss his long association with Pulitzer prize-winner Steve Reich and the origin of Reich’s seminal Six Pianos. Creech discusses how he uses “queer theatre, captivating costumes, and glittery hair” to turn his solo instrument into a full stage show.

    Join us for the first Encounters of Soundstreams 36th Season. There will be live music, stimulating discussion and the wonderful food and beverages on hand at the Gladstone, and it’s free!

    From SoundStreams

    Six Pianos Opens 36th Season

    The Musical Spectacle That Is Six Pianos
    “There’s just a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history and Steve Reich is one of them.”
    The Guardian (London)

    Six Pianos opens Soundstreams 36th season on October 12 at Koerner Hall. This popular Steve Reich classic is equal parts spectacle and musical event.

    Musically, Soundstreams has assembled a who’s who of pianists/percussionists, they include Russell Hartenberger, Greg Oh, Stephanie Chua, Ryan Scott and Midori Koga. For the spectacle, you will have the rare opportunity to see and hear, thanks to The Steinway Piano Gallery, the six concert grands that will grace the Koerner Hall stage.

    The Price is Reich
    Here’s an offer anyone in their Reich mind won’t be able to resist. When you buy a ticket for Six Pianos, get on board with the Rolston String Quartet for Different Trains (Feb. 2), like you’ve never heard it before, and enjoy a reduced rate, starting at $75, for both shows on Level B and C tickets. This offer is only good until the first note of Six Pianos, quantities are limited. Order today!

    Soundstreams showcases the work of Canadian and international composers through innovative musical experiences.

    Soundstreams is one of the world’s leading contemporary music companies, and the largest global presenter of new Canadian music. Artistic Director Lawrence Cherney and Executive Director Ben Dietschi are committed to showcasing the work of living and international composers with a focus on innovative thematic and experiential programming.

    Soundstreams also serves a broad community of music lovers through free outreach and education programs including Encounters, the Emerging Composer Workshop, SoundWave, and SoundMakers. Encounters is a free monthly discovery series featuring performances, discussions, and audience participation; the Emerging Composer Workshop helps talented contemporary composers from around the world launch their careers; SoundWave provides accessible tickets to young adults; and SoundMakers provides interactive learning experiences online and in the classroom.

    Founded in 1982 by oboist Lawrence Cherney as Chamber Concerts Canada, Soundstreams has presented a variety of series over its 33-year history, including Musical Mondays at the Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People, and Encounters at the CBC’s Glenn Gould Studio. Soundstreams commissions have added more than 150 works to the musical repertoire worldwide, reflecting a diverse variety of genres and cultural traditions. World premieres have included works by composers R. Murray Schafer, John Tavener, Steve Reich, Christos Hatzis, Harry Somers, Nicole Lizée, James MacMillan, James Rolfe, Melissa Hui, and Andrew Staniland, to name a few.

    Projects have included festivals and conferences such as the Northern Encounters festival, University Voices, and Cool Drummings percussion festival and conference, as well as new productions such as Thomson Highway and Melissa Hui’s Cree opera Pimooteewin: The Journey (which toured Northern Ontario in 2009 and 2010), R. Murray Schafer’s Dora Award-winning site-specific opera The Children’s Crusade (produced in association with the Luminato Festival), and Brian Current’s Dora-nominated opera Airline Icarus.
