Helen Pridmore CD release
Sunday April 21, 2013
Studio C, Lower Level of Art Central, 100 7 Ave SW
The concert and CD present works by Canadian composers from across the country that have been written especially for Pridmore. The Whole Note says of the album, “Clearly, the composers have all been attracted to Pridmore’s unique skill set and manner of working. The resulting music takes full advantage of her attractive and flexible voice, impressively extended technical and stylistic range and — perhaps most important of all — adventuresome spirit.” She will also be performing a work by John Cage to celebrate his 100th birthday, which just passed in 2012. Her previous disc Between the Shore and the Ships won Best Classical CD at the recent East Coast Music Awards (ECMAs), held in Halifax in early March.
