Featuring Six World Premieres by Ontario Resonance Mentoring Composers!
Ontario Resonance is a free student mentorship program created by Esprit Orchestra with support from the Government of Ontario to mark Ontario’s 150th anniversary. Students at six schools across the GTA are paired with a professional composer who mentors them in the creation of their own piece of music, which is then performed by a combination of student musicians and members of Esprit Orchestra. The program focuses on the creation of new music with the theme of Ontario places, sounds, and historical and cultural ties. Students receive hands-on performance and composition opportunities, and develop an awareness of and appreciation for Ontario’s contemporary cultural environment.
