About the event
Here Be Sirens, Slow Rise Music's third project, explores themes of yearning, femininity and temptation through the lens of siren song. With its focus on the experience of women, Here Be Sirens will be presented by four of Toronto's most exciting rising sopranos: Midori Marsh, Natalya Gennadi, Shantelle Pryzbylo, and McKenzie Warriner. Their timbres will be complemented by acclaimed cello duo Vc2 and surround-sound electroacoustic effects to create an other-wordly soundscape.
Along with American composer Kate Soper's Here Be Sirens Suite, the concert features new compositions by Ashley Seward, Paul Lessard, Aida Khorsandi, and Kathryn Knowles, drawn together into unique, cohesive whole with sound design by Slow Rise Music co-founder Tristan Zaba and set design by award-winning artist Jessica Hiemstra.
