Soundstreams and R. Murray Schafer — A 30-Year Collaboration
Soundstreams acknowledges R. Murray Schafer’s passing with profound sorrow, but at the same time, we recognize that now we have both the responsibility and the opportunity to share that music with Canada and the rest of the world. This historical concert also marks the beginning of Soundstreams’ 40th anniversary season.
What to Expect
Soundstreams collaborated closely with Schafer for 30 years, commissioning and premiering some of the major works in his opus. To pay tribute to Schafer, Soundstreams’ Founding Artistic Director Lawrence Cherney has put together a small sample of Schafer’s masterworks.
