BEVERLY GLENN COPELAND AND INDIGO RISING
The diverse work of legendary singer and composer Beverly Glenn Copeland has been gathering momentum again over the past couple of years thanks to the reissue of his genre-defying 1987 album Keyboard Fantasies on Invisible City Editions and subsequently Séance Centre. Its hybrid of new age, shades of early techno, and minimalism with the warmth of traditional songwriting resonated with new audiences and thrust Copeland into visibility. Trained on the piano since “cradlehood”, his rich career has embraced classical music, experimental jazz-inflected folk (as heard on his coveted self-titled album on GRT), children's music and cross-disciplinary collaborations—all of which inform his eclectic practice today.

Last year he endeared himself to audiences at Sappyfest and joined the Queer Songbook Orchestra at the National Arts Centre and Toronto's Pride—the latter of which garnered two standing ovations in the span of a mere four songs.

This concert represents his first full program of music in Toronto since 2002. His five-piece band Indigo Rising is comprised of some of Canada's leading lights: Nick Dourado and Jeremy Costello (of Special Costello), Thom Gill, Kurt Inder and Bianca Palmer.

TRYAL
Virtuoso singer Alex Samaras is well-known in Toronto for his unique interpretations of the jazz repertoire and his work with contemporary composers. He’s a local hero in the choral and music education scenes, a collaborator of cult NYC downtown figure Meredith Monk and leader of vocal ensemble Grex.

Tryal is a new project featuring his own songs : charismatic compositions that treat electronic pop sophistication as a springboard for all manner of exploration. Lithe dream-like arrangements give way to peculiar lushness; beats dissolve into weightless melodies.

LOOM
Brooke Manning’s Loom occupies a haunted netherworld adjacent to folk but also other darker expressions. Its delicate spareness is anchored by the weight of droning sonorities, while Manning’s radiant vocal lines cast strange and evocative shadows.

This event marks Loom’s anticipated return to playing following a hiatus of almost two years.
