Sounds of Silence
The Sounds of Silence will bring together 15 composer, 15 poets, and 15 singers in celebration of the Sesquicentennial Anniversary of Canadian Confederation. Together they will collaborate to produce 15 new performance pieces that tell the story of a diverse Canadian cultural identity. While the composers and singers are students at the University of Toronto, the poets are all members of underrepresented and often repressed communities in the Greater Toronto Area. This project will give a platform on which the diverse voices of Indigenous, immigrant, and LGBT communities can be heard. For with music will will give voice to those who have been silenced.
