Elektra welcomes the Sitka String Quartet of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in a program of uplifting works in celebration of life and nature. The concert features three world premieres: the title work by Argentina’s Santiago Veros, Teachings of the Water by Patrick Carrabré with Squamish text by Rebeccca Duncan and Two Shakespeare Songs by Stephen Smith. Rounding out the program are Marie-Claire Saindon’s stunning Blinded by a Leafy Crown and Night by Ramona Luengen in a new version with string quartet.

On June 9, Elektra will release a new video, Snewíyalh tl’a Staḵw (Teachings of the Water). The fruit of a collaborative project with First Nations for over two years which was conceived by Co-Curator and ethnomusicologist, Dr. Jeanette Gallant (B.Mus. UBC, D.Phil. Oxford), the video is a musical exploration of water teachings and relationality in First Nations cultures.

“Trail-blazing a new path for women’s choirs, matched with high artistic standards, has been a part of the Elektra formula since the start…”
David Gordon Duke, Vancouver Sun, August 17, 2016
