In our 2019/20 Season
, we are exploring how "old" can meet "new." This theme runs across our season in many ways, including six short new works by living composers written to complement the programs.
We are delighted to introduce Canadian composer James Rolfe, whose new work for voice will premiere in Lotti Revealed.
Tafelmusik: Tell us a little about yourself, and how you started composing music.
By Richard Whittall, countertenor
There was not a little excitement when, earlier last year, word came down to members of the Tafelmusik Chamber Choir that Pro Coro Canada had invited us to perform as part of the Edmonton International Choral Festival on Friday, May 31, 2019.
Keith Lam has been a member of the Tafelmusik Chamber Choir since 2012.He was first introduced to Tafelmusik as a participant in the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute from 2009 to 2012. Born in Hong Kong, he can be found on stages in Toronto and further afield, most recently with the Bicycle Opera Project, Canadian Opera Company Chorus, Opera Atelier, and Soundstreams.
