Four Canadian composers have created compelling musical portraits of four exceptional Canadian women, in collaboration with the National Arts Centre Orchestra. Roberta Bondar, Rita Joe, Alice Munro, and Amanda Todd are the inspiration behind Life Reflected, a unique symphonic and multi-media celebration of youth, promise, and courage. The staging includes stunning projections, which immerse the audience in sound, motion picture, photography, and graphic design. This is the opening Concert of ISCM World New Music Days 2017.
