Composer and multi-reed player, Paul Cram, is our artist in residence for November. Paul began his career in Vancouver and was a key part of the scene here in the 70s and 80s, perhaps most importantly as co-founder of the New Orchestra Workshop and New Orchestra Quintet. Paul then moved to Nova Scotia where he formed the Upstream Ensemble. He is now a signifcant force in creative music in that province. More on Paul at his website
Paul will be working with a large student ensemble on Saturday afternoons this month and then presenting a concert showing the fruits of their labours on Wednesday, December 2 at 11:30am.. Among other things, the ensemble will be working on Paul's scores for Buster Keaton films "The Navigator" and Steamboat Bill Jr".
We are really excited that Paul is sharing his music and his time with us!
