New Music Edmonton Presents – UltraViolet Ensemble
NME’s second show of the season features Edmonton powerhouse new music ensemble UltraViolet, who will be premiering four new works by Edmonton composers, paired alongside Shadowgraph 5 (1977) by living American legend, George Lewis. We’re thrilled to present brand new pieces by Sointu Aalto, Emilie Cecilia LeBel, and Nicolás Arnáez. Rather than focusing on a particular sound or theme, UltraViolet is highlighting a sense of place – amiskwaciwâskahikan/Edmonton – and the vibrant scenes and sounds this city inspires. Free admission.
Free outreach event – join Allison Balcetis and Chenoa Anderson for a free woodwind techniques for composers and performers workshop on November 24. 11-12:30 Room 11-363 of Allard Hall (11110 104 Avenue NW, MacEwan University).
UltraViolet (Roger Admiral, piano, Chenoa Anderson, flutes, Allison Balcetis, saxophones, and Mark Segger, percussion)is the only instrumental ensemble in Edmonton whose mandate focuses exclusively on the creation and performance of new classical compositions. The quartet is named in honour of composer Dr. Violet Archer, who encouraged her students at the University of Alberta to create their own opportunities for their music to be performed.
