Atwood, Heggie, & Brahms
What's

happening?

Canadian baritone Joshua Hopkins performs Songs for Murdered Sisters, a deeply personal new song cycle that conveys the tragedy of lives needlessly lost, composed by Jake Heggie based on original poetry by Margaret Atwood.

Bookending the concert are a new concerto grosso by Odawa First Nation composer Barbara Assiginaak (NACO commission, world premiere) and Brahms’s furiously passionate Symphony No. 4.

Co-commissioned by the National Arts Centre and Houston Grand Opera, Songs For Murdered Sisters is dedicated to the memory of Hopkins’s sister Nathalie Warmerdam, Anastasia Kuzyk and Carol Culleton, and victims of gender-based violence.
