On November 7, we launch our 2018 European tour with a first-ever visit to Norway, featuring a performance with Nordic Voices at the magnificent Sentralen cultural house in downtown Oslo.
Our Oslo visit also realizes an ambitious long-term collaboration that we have been planning with Nordic Voices for almost two years. Our partnership will curate programmes that combine commissioned works for voices and choir, by Canadian and Norwegian composers, with existing Gryphon Trio and Nordic Voices repertoire. We will offer these programmes to presenters throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe.
Our Tilburg performance is especially exciting. It features as its guest Canadian baritone David John Pike, who lives with his family on the Luxembourg Moselle. David will perform Vaughan Williams’ Songs of Travel and Canadian composer James Wright’s Briefe an die unsterbliche Geliebte.
