The Brandon University Orchestra, Concert Choir, Chorale and Symphonic Band will join forces with students from local high schools to perform music by T. Patrick Carrabré. Honouring Pat’s contribution to Canadian music, twenty-five years at Brandon University and his sixtieth birthday, the program will include a number of works that have never been performed for local audiences. The pow wow group Spirit Sands Singers, led by Michael Esquash Sr., will join the BU Orchestra and Choirs in Creation Stories, originally written for the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Cellist Leanne Zacharias will also take a solo role, in front of the Symphonic Band in Prairie Sky—a piece the group premiered at the Whistler Music Festival in 2013.
