Experience an increase in the density of our shared medium with the premieres of three works. Sierra Phosy and Emily McDermid open the space with Friedman’s duo for piccolo and trumpet. The full complement of flutes then surround the audience with Friedman’s lush antiphon Efflorescence, a polywork of the composer’s Glaucous for strings and a response to Franz Liszt’s Nuages. Finally, Trio Taco and a guest commune in Riedstra’s –——-––—, a beswitchingly intense work for four people performing “not louder than your breath at rest.”

Trio Taco are Bailey Finley, Sierra Phosy, and Alanna Kazdan (flutes, breath). They are joined by guests Jill Broughton, Jasmine Riseley, and Cooper Reed (“Trio Burrito”, flutes), Syssilia H.E. Reid (breath), and Emily McDermid (trumpet).

This event takes place on the unceded traditional territories of the Songhees and Esquimalt nations.
