Gros Morne Summer Music entertaining ‘From the Edge’
Gros Morne Summer Music’s new season is highlighted by the return of Dark by Five and The Convent Sessions, a series designed for the company’s new home in Corner Brook.
Going back to its creative and musical roots, Gros Morne Summer Music ushers in a season focusing on music events and offerings in unique locations and intimate spaces.
Entitled “From the Edge,” the season runs July through August in Corner Brook and Woody Point.
“Rooted in Western Newfoundland, our work aims to deepen the social agency of art with a commitment to the integrity of artistic practice,” says artistic director David Maggs in a release. “2019 brings us back to the heart of our ambition, working at the edge of our creative imagination, the edge of our imaginative horizon, where we can just glimpse that distant expressive possibility in ourselves.”
The Convent Sessions feature Newfoundland artists Duane Andrews, Shirley Montague, Jodee Richardson and Wendy Woodland, and backed by The Intelligent House Band’s Lou MacDonald, Scott Sheppard and Paul Harris.
The season also includes a music innovation summit, a Come Home Week show with Fields of Gold-The Music of Sting and The Police, created and directed by Yvette Coleman, classical concerts by Craig Humber, the Maryland State Boychoir, the Atlantic String Quartet, a co-presentation with the Aga Khan Museum, Blood on the Newfie Bullet, a murder mystery show created and directed by Ian Locke, staged in the historic train in Corner Brook, and youth summer training offerings.
