MtA Music Online: Brittany Rae, soprano & Jesse Plessis, piano

October 24, 2020

On Saturday, October 24 at 7:30 pm, Mount Allison Music will host a virtual recital by one of Canada’s most promising young vocalists—soprano Brittany Rae, winner of the 43rd annual Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition. In her Sackville recital—part of an online Canadian concert tour—she will be joined by pianist Jesse Plessis. The performance will be live streamed free of charge on our YouTube channel “Mount Allison Department of Music.”

A highlight of the virtual recital is the 2020 E-Gré Competition commissioned work “Han Kang: Lost in Translation” by Manitoba composer Gordon Fitzell. The performers will also present songs by Canadian composers Ana Sokolović, Claude Vivier, and John Weinzweig, as well as works by George Benjamin, Osvaldo Golijov, Nicola LeFanu, György Ligeti, and Olivier Messiaen.

Please note that this online event is live rather than pre-recorded, and will not be available for viewing at a later time. For more information, call (506) 364-2374 or e-mail music@mta.ca. Visit the website of the Department of Music at www.mta.ca/music/.
