2015 – 2016 Concert Season
We are happy to announce that in the 2015-16 season CASP will begin a new series of concerts:
The Canadian Art Song Project Recital Series.
This, the first series of ticketed concerts presented by CASP, marks the next stage in our artistic development and mission of introducing Canadian audiences to their own art song repertoire. After four years of annual “Celebration of Canadian Art Song” concerts as a part of the Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre, CASP will expand to offer two additional intimate recitals starring established and emerging Canadian artists proudly presenting Canadian works alongside European and American song.
