Celebrating Our Culture Through Song
ART SONG (n): A song written to be sung in recital, typically with piano accompaniment, and often set to a poem. (Oxford Dictionaries)
Canadian Art Song Project believes that the genre of art song has the ability to connect people in the most intimate of ways by intensifying, through music, our collective experiences that have been recorded through the written word. In exploring and contributing to this vast repertoire we attempt to increase our contemporary understanding of what it means to be human.
Our goal is to build on the rich legacy of Canadian song by engaging composers, poets, and performers to share and celebrate their experiences through the creation of new music while, at the same time, providing opportunities for Canadian artists to program and advocate the wealth of beauty in the existing song literature. We commission, perform, promote and record Canadian art song.
