In an intimate evening presented by TWU’s School of the Arts, Media and Culture, performances by the guitar quartet and piano trio are interspersed with readings of narrative nonfiction penned by writers from SAMC’s Media + Communication Department.  Chamber Music + Vignettes will be an eclectic evening of story through music and prose.

Highlights include:

  • the guitar ensemble’s contemporary favourites by artists like Muse and Mumford & Sons
  • Glinka’s Trio Pathétique in D Minor performed by piano, clarinet, and bassoon
  • a selection of narrative readings touching on a range of themes; from a young boy’s solo excursion with a BB gun, to a young woman’s awareness of the ultimate femininity

SAMC's narrative nonfiction instructor Loranne Brown says, “Often, we come to understand ourselves best when we collide with a different culture, different expectations, and arrive at a greater appreciation for our origins.  It’s a unique privilege to showcase the written word alongside stimulating pieces of music, for a well-rounded artistic experience.” 

Presented as part of TWU's 3rd Annual Festival of the Arts, Media + Culture.  More about this and other events at twu.ca/samc.
