Alter Egos

Testing the perceptions of a traditional symphonic musician, Principal Clarinetist Stephen Pierre and Principal Double Bassist Rob Wolanski break out of the box and show us what else they can play. In a program featuring guitar, saxophone, basset horn and electric bass, along with HPO musicians on the violin, trumpet and trombone, this evocative concert features two world premieres by Hamilton composers Christien Ledroit and our own Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte.

Also featured on this concert are Canadian composer Vincent Ho’s Whimsical Sketches of Fanciful Birds and music by Vivian Fung, who turns the piano into a completely different instrument in her piece Glimpses.
