In this celestial performance piece, inspired by the orbits of the moons of Mars, pianist Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa performs Jocelyn Morlock’s “Phobos And Deimos Circling”. This is one of several pieces on the album Cosmophony. Cosmophony asks nine Canadian composers to share their inner thoughts about outer space. Iwaasa’s performance of Cosmophony was a highlight of our 2015 Powell Street Festival.

What is #GivingTuesday?

After Amercian Thanksgiving in November, people in Canada and the US take advantage of sales and celebrate Black Friday and even Cyber Monday. The following day is #GivingTuesday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
