Communications, Public Affairs & Marketing
A collection of music composed and performed by Laurier alumni is being released in March 2011 to mark the university’s 100th anniversary celebrations.
Titled “Canadian Flute Quartets,” the CD will feature the music of six Canadian composers, including Laurier alumnus Sally Norris. Music professor Amy Hamilton, and alumni Heather Kilborn Snowden, Jennifer Brimson and Don Ellis-Mobbs will perform the music.
“Laurier’s Faculty of Music is known throughout Canada for our interest in contemporary music – particularly Canadian contemporary music,” said Hamilton. “This is a prime example of what we are dedicated to in the Faculty of Music.”
The CD will be available through the Canadian Music Centre, which has its national office in Toronto. Sales are also available online at www.musiccentre.ca.
“The CD augments our celebration in the Faculty of Music,” said Hamilton. “It will keep promoting our centennial for a long time to come.”
