Poetics in Jazz is a special concert that celebrates and showcases the work of Saskatchewan-based poets. We’ll be weaving performances of their poetry alongside newly composed original music orchestrated for large jazz ensemble. We will also be presenting the western Canadian premier of the Atwood Suite by Canadian composer Andrew Rathbun.
The Saskatchewan-based poets involved in this concert include poet and author Michael Bradford, Pattie O’Rourke poetry scholarship recipient Glenda Fu, Saskatchewan’s current Youth Poet Laureate Lauren (Lo) Klassen, and former Saskatchewan Poet Laureate Glen Sorestad.
Special guest musicians include Tara Davidson (Toronto), Mo Lefever (Edmonton), and Andrew Rathbun (New York).
