Composer Alex Eddington is seeking amateur choirs (SATB/SAB/SA/TB/unis.) to join a consortium for the 2019/20 season.

Up to 11 choirs will co-commission a new piece for choir and piano: a setting of Lotte Kramer’s beautiful poem “Boy With Orange (out of Kosovo)”.

Sign-up by July 31, 2019 (NEW DEADLINE) - premiere anytime during the 19/20 season!

The Odin String Quartet premiered gibbons vs. Gibbons on March 1 at Array Space in Toronto.

Not only did they capture the sound of singing gibbon apes in their tone, and the finicky string effects needed to create the sense of Renaissance music (by Orlando Gibbons, naturally) being swatted around by these mischievous primates, but they made it funny!
