CMC BC’s Legacy Composer Film Series

February 4, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Canadian Music Centre presents
CMC BC’s Legacy Composer Film Series

Celebrate the first generation of composers who do something quite revolutionary — write Western concert music on the West Coast of Canada. Made possible by a grant from the BC Arts Council, the films focus on five BC Legacy Composers: Murray Adaskin, Barbara Pentland, Rudolf Komorous, Jean Coulthard, and Elliot Weisgarber. Each has contributed something unique and remarkable to the nation’s cultural mosaic through their body of work and the living legacy of students they inspired. Produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker John Bolton, the five short films each feature a performance of a signature work by the composer juxtaposed against a storyline unique to that piece.

Many UVic School of Music faculty, students, and alumni can be seen and heard in these videos.

This event is part of the School of Music’s 50th Anniversary New Music & Digital Media Festival.
