Please feel very welcome to attend an interdisciplinary concert by the Canadian Sinfonietta orchestra, called: Four Seasons in Music, Poetry and Art. The fabulous and dramatic Lara St John will be the violin soloist in both Vivaldi and Piazzolla’s “Seasons” Violin Concerti. The Piazzolla version is a passionate, tango counterpoint to the Vivaldi.

Installation artist Kristen Peterson (whose public art can be seen currently at TTC stops along the St Clair streetcar line), will have installed towering 3D drawings throughout the Glenn Gould Studio concert hall. Phoebe Tsang’s contribution will be a reading of 4 new poems commissioned for this event.

Jewellery by Toronto artisan Urban Gypsy will be available for browsing at intermission and before and after the concert, alongside poetry books from my publisher, Tightrope Books.

Phoebe’s latest book with Tightrope is Contents of a Mermaid’s Purse.
