Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra - Jeremy Dutcher in Concert
Polaris Prize and Juno Award-winner Jeremy Dutcher is at the forefront of today’s surging Indigenous Renaissance. The classically trained vocalist, composer, and ethnomusicologist rocketed to international acclaim following the release of his album, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, inspired by 110-year- old wax cylinder recordings of his ancestors’ songs. Dutcher was an NMC Artist in Residence at NMC in 2016. This concert is presented in partnership with Calgary Folk Music Festival. Join us for a pre-concert fashion show presented as part of Otahpiaaki 2019: Ísstoíyítahsinni//Winter Counts — Celebrations of Indigenous Language Through Visual Sovereignty, Story & Design. This week-long event, presented in collaboration with PARK, is a gathering place for a host of Indigenous fashion designers, artists, musicians, and performers showcasing and celebrating indigenous beauty in all of its forms — intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual. The fashion show begins at 6:45PM and features four Indigenous designers. For more information visit otahpiaakifashionweek.com and ourparkonline.com.
