We are thrilled to welcome world/fusion vocalist Suba Sankaran to the Tafelmusik stage in The Indigo Project. Suba has composed and produced music for theatre, film, radio, and dance. She currently teaches in the jazz department at Humber College, co-directs Toronto’s City Choir, is artistic associate at Confluence Concerts, and is co-sound designer, composer, and performer with Why Not Theatre/Shaw Festival’s upcoming production of the epic story, Mahabharata. We sat down with Suba to learn a bit more about her and her music-making.
Tafelmusik: How are you preparing for this concert?
In keeping with our 2019/20 Season theme of “old meets new” we are thrilled to share the work of some of Canada’s and the world’s most exciting contemporary artists as part of our season campaign.
These stunning images were chosen to complement both the season theme and the theme of each individual concert. We chatted with Laura Millard, the photographer behind the image for Gone with the Winds.
Tafelmusik’s education concerts have introduced live baroque and classical music for free to many children. We work directly with schools from different communities across the GTA, who lack access to enhanced musical education programs, to ensure that all children can explore the magic of music in an engaging and interactive way. With the recent financial cuts in the public school education system, these opportunities for children are more precious than ever.
