Heather Pawsey to sing in Leslie Uyeda's Grace Notes

From the Music in the Morning site:

"Composer, pianist and conductor Leslie Uyeda with co-director and reader Crystal Bergman have created Grace Notes, an ambitious celebration of words and song. This world premiere features eight opera singers and five chamber musicians performing arias, duos and choral works in a presentation of readings and new music. Inspired by the uplifting texts of 13th century Persian poet Hafiz, the late Canadian poet Miriam Waddington and American poet Denise Levertov, Uyeda and Bergman have created a programme celebrating light, love and grace."

Performances will be in the Koerner Recital Hall at the Vancouver Academy of Music in Vancouver. Show runs from December 6-9 at 10:30am. Full listing of singers and musicians to be posted later.

This performance will be recorded for CBC Radio 2 program In Performance.
