Upcoming Concert (2018)
Featured Performers September 22nd
Collectif is a Canadian ensemble dedicated to exploring and expanding the world of art song performance. Founded in 2015 by soprano Danika Lorèn, soprano Jennifer Krabbe, mezzo-soprano Whitney O’Hearn, and pianist Tom King, Collectif turns well known as well as obscure selections from the vast art song repertoire into original staged narratives. In its 2015/16 season, Collectif’s main series presented a newly compiled pastiche Le Rossignol et la Rose and a staged interpretation of Schubert's Winterreise in As a Stranger. Along with their main stage shows, Collectif also hosts cabarets nights showcasing the more boisterous and bawdy sides of classical music sampling the more cheeky and irreverent selections from the last 400 years of the vocal repertoire. This season, Collectif will have their debut at the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre in the Four Season’s Center for the Performing Arts premiering a brand new pastiche Fête based on Paul Verlaine's Fêtes galantes and Reynaldo Hahn's Douze Rondels.
