Creation by Barbara Assiginaak – a TMC commission

In the Beginning by Aaron Copland

Mass for the Endangered by Sarah Kirkland Snider – a Canadian premiere

More on the works.

Barbara Assiginaak says of Creation: “I am so honoured to be invited to work with the Tkaronto Mendelssohn Choir and to seek a way to honour my ancestors and family who did not always have a voice, or else had no one who would listen to them. It is a huge responsibility I have carried as the child of a residential school survivor, through decades of working through the medium of so-called classical music and finding a way to respect that tradition while also honouring Anishinaabeg traditions and language. Chi miigwetch.”

Mass for the Endangered is a hymn for the voiceless and the discounted, a requiem for the not-yet-gone. Using original text by writer, visual artist, and musician, Nathaniel Bellows, in combination with the traditional Latin, Mass for the Endangered embodies a prayer for endangered animals and the environments in which they live.

Enjoy the concert in person (limited tickets will be sold and strict Covid-19 health and safety protocols will be in place) or enjoy it livestreamed from home.

Tickets will go on sale January 2022.
