Masters Series with Tanya Tagaq
November 18, 2017
Eric Paetkau, Music Director
William Boan, violin
Tanya Tagaq, vocalist
When Tanya Tagaq premiered her new work Qiksaatuq with the Toronto Symphony in March 2017 the work was called captivating, profound, and devastating – the SSO is thrilled to welcome the one of a kind Tagaq back to the stage with us.
The SSO’s own assistant-concertmaster William Boan, 2015 winner of the Saskatchewan Concerto Competition, makes his orchestral debut playing one of the most colourful and vivid concertos written for the instrument. Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde and Hatzis’ new Thunder Drum are heart-on-sleeve master pieces that express the human condition at its most exposed.
