Evelyn Hart

For the past ten years, we have enjoyed performing numerous works for violin, piano, and narrator/actor with prima ballerina star and national treasure Evelyn Hart. These include:

Vincent Ho Maples in the Stream. A tour de force of movement, music and narration with text by Chinese/Canadian poet Lien Chu which depicts the tortured journey from post revolution China to a new home in Canada.

Andrew Staniland The Ocean is Full of its Own Collapse. The text is from Lisa Moore’s February and based on the tragedy of the 1982 Newfoundland Ocean Ranger disaster, which took the lives of 84 men. Duo Concertante commissioned this work with generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts.

Chan Ka Kin Late in a Slow Time. The poetry is by the award-winning Nova Scotia poet Carole Langille. This musical and narrative work explores the contradictory nature of wonder, suffering, and acceptance.
