SFU Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre

Turning Point Ensemble will be conducted by leading Croatian composer and conductor Berislav Šipuš in a rare opportunity to experience first-hand the distinctive and colourful contemporary music culture of Croatia. This program is part of a multi-year exchange exchange which involves the exchange of the ensembles and artistic directors of Turning Point Ensemble and Cantus Ensemble of Zagreb. The concert itself is an ambitious and rich collection of work for large ensemble representing a number of generations of Croatian composers. It will include In der Ferne (In the Distance) by our guest conductor/composer (with Vancouver soprano Robyn Driedger-Klassen as soloist), as well as works by Srđan Dedić, Marko Ruždjak, Krešimir Seletković, and Stanko Horvat.
