Vancouver’s leading new music ensemble, Standing Wave, presents Leviathan, a musical exploration of our interaction with different environments; the natural, social and political. Featuring the premiere of Jared Miller’s Leviathan, this new work is inspired by and includes the songs of the blue whale, written as a way to make these sounds from the deep more relatable to human ears. Described as a “rising star” by MusicWorks magazine, the Canadian-American composer’s eclectic music is “playful” (New York Times), “hypnotic” (Sequenza 21), and “highly personal” (CBC Radio).
Also featured on the program are works by Bent Sørensen, Harry Stafylakis, Patrick Giguère, Keith Hamel and the premiere of Christopher Mayos’ contribution to our 20C Remix Project.
Adjacent to the Orpheum, the appropriately named Annex is a spunky, cabaret-style venue equally suited for dance and musical performances as receptions and rehearsals. The space is easily converted from flat-floor to a tiered theatre space with 193 seats and is expertly equipped to accommodate a range of sound and light options.Explore This Venue
