Ensemble Obiora

Ensemble Obiora

Sunday July 23 – 7:00pm

Created in March 2201 by Allison Migeon (Executive Director) and Brandyn Lewis (Artistic Director), Ensemble Obiora is Canada’s first classical music ensemble composed mostly of professional musicians from diverse cultural backgrounds. The mission of Ensemble Obiora is to promote musicians from different cultural backgrounds in order to increase their representation on the classical music scene, and to program unfamiliar works by composers of color whose contributions have gone unnoticed. Founded on the 3D principles of Diversity, Discovery and Dissemination, Ensemble Obiora strives to bring a new and diverse voice to classical music in Canada, to create a sense of belonging in underrepresented communities, and to inspire the next generation of classical musicians. The Obiora Ensemble presents ”Afro-Classics”, a concert dedicated to works by Black composers who have marked the history of Western classical music. The program includes music by classical period composer Joseph Boulogne (1745-1799), romantic era Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912), and cotemporary Jeff Scott (b.1967).
