Blue of the Distance
for two sopranos and piano
Commissioned by Women on the Verge (Elizabeth Mcdonald, Emily Martin and Kathryn Tremills), with support of the Canada Council for the Arts
Women on the Verge is a trio of women dedicated to exploring and performing vocal works that tell the stories of women’s lives both past and present. Blue of the Distance explores themes of migration, displacement, and the experience of women caught in this turmoil.
I acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
