MUSAIC at the UBC Museum of Anthropology on March 28

Hey all you Vancouverites: on Sunday, March 28, beat those post-Olympic blues with MUSAIC, an interactive concert at UBC's Museum of Anthropology featuring Kathryn Cernauskas on flute, AK Coope on clarinet, pianist Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa, and soprano Heather Pawsey. From Heather's press release:
This interactive performance features an all-Canadian program including the music of Canadian composers Graham Coles, Jean Coulthard, Clifford Crawley, Srul Irving Glick, Robert LeMay, Leila Lustig, Francois Morel, John Oliver, Harry Somers, Leslie Uyeda, Elliot Weisgarber, and others.

Come and join a journey-both musical and literal - through the stunning spaces of the late Arthur Ericksen's architectural masterpiece, the newly renovated Museum of Anthropology.

Acclaimed musicians Kathryn Cernauskas, flute; AK Coope, clarinet; Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa, piano; Heather Pawsey, soprano with surprise guests, invite you to explore First Peoples and other world cultures through music, art, space and artifacts in this kaleidoscopic quest. Join in and follow the performers as they entice you through the exquisite expanses of the Museum - from the grand and soaring galleries to the small and intimate laboratories and lounges - providing incredible opportunities for acoustic and visual exploration.

The impetus for, and focus of, this concert is passion for history and its effects and continuum in our present life; for cross-cultural art and its expression in inter- or multi-disciplinary forms; and from a fascination and respect for different cultures and cultural traditions. The MOA's mission "... to investigate, preserve, and present objects and expressions of human creativity in order to promote understanding of, and respect for, world cultures" integrates ideally with the rich and multi-layered cultural and stylistic diversity of Canadian music.
MUSAIC starts at 7pm on Sunday March 28 at the UBC Museum of Anthropology on 6393 Northwest Marine Drive. Tickets are free!
