University of Calgary World Music Ensemble

New this winter semester, I (Paula) and Riana have been working with the University of Calgary World Music Ensemble. It has been a pleasure to work with a group of very keen young people at the university, and they have been working hard on two pieces for their upcoming concert at the Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, located in the Rosza Centre on the U of C campus.

Please support this ensemble as they present some exciting taiko along with other forms of world music to conclude their winter semester. Ticket information at

The ensemble will be made up of a combination of performers of instruments from throughout the world, including both Western and non-Western instruments, and both music majors and non-music majors. The concept of the ensemble is to develop and perform music from various cultural traditions from throughout the world. The ensemble will explore the relationships between tradition and innovation by developing new works and reworking traditional music through a student-driven creative process. Students will have the opportunity, if desired, to compose for the group. The individual musical heritages of each student will be drawn upon, resulting in new musical expressions that will demonstrate the potential of intercultural understanding and communication.
