Description:

Join soprano Christina Raphaëlle Haldane and special guests in a performance event to celebrate the release of her debut album 'Let Me Explain'. The album features an all Canadian musical line-up, with works by David Jaeger C. M., Carl Philippe Gionet, Samy Moussa & Oscar Peterson. The performance will include songs from David Jaeger’s 'The Echo Cycle', which he composed for Christina, set to poems by her father, Seán Haldane. David will discuss his creative response to poetry and the process behind his compositional approach to writing art songs. Christina’s cousin, the Acadian pianist and interdisciplinary artist Carl Philippe Gionet, created re-imagined classical arrangements of Acadian Folksongs, set for her voice, which will also be featured on the program. Christina is thrilled to also delve into the world of jazz, by performing works by the iconic Oscar Peterson. She is grateful for the beautiful friendship provided by Oscar's family, Céline and Kelly Peterson, who shared with her one of Oscar's songs called 'Why Think About Tomorrow'.
