New video: Behind the scenes of Ayre

By November 1, 2016 Ayre, Video No Comments

“It’s important for [Toronto’s classical music scene] to get outside their comfort zone and reflect the diversity of the city.”

Lebanese-Canadian soprano Miriam Khalil and director Joel Ivany stopped by the Ismaili Centre Toronto to explore the cultural threads of Osvaldo Golijov’s electric song cycle Ayre. (The title in medieval Spanish means “air” in both the sense of “song” and the air we breathe.)

Ayre: An Evening of Osvaldo Golijov is presented in partnership with the Aga Khan Council for Canada, and the Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory of Music.
