Iris Trio
Begins January 31, 2023
Iris Trio


The Iris Trio, together with celebrated Canadian poet, Don McKay (Governor General’s Award, Griffin Poetry Prize) presents the “Blue Chapter” of their multi-year “Project Earth,” including stunning new works by McKay and Juno-nominated composer/jazz pianist Florian Hoefner. Project Earth is the Trio’s response to the triple planetary crisis. Through newly commissioned poetry and genre-crossing chamber music, the project strives to illuminate the impact of human behavior on the environment, addressing issues of climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss, while recognizing the power of our collective imagination to create meaningful change. Celebrated for their imaginative programming and powerhouse performances, this evening with the Iris Trio (clarinetist Christine Carter, violist Zoë Martin-Doike, and pianist Anna Petrova) will mark the ensemble’s debut at the National Arts Centre.
