The QuarterTones Flute Ensemble, in conjunction with composer David McIntyre and pianist Gordon Gerrard, are working towards creating a piece that we focus on the themes of Diversity and Identity and will hopefully be premiered during the Pride festivals in Saskatchewan in June of 2018.

We are looking for your support help fund this composition project!

The QuarterTones worked with David McIntyre in 2014 on his composition "Argyle Street" which was a piece for flute quartet. The piece went on to win the 2014 Newly Published Music Award -Chamber Music from the National Flute Association. It has since been performed internationally and remains one of David's most popular pieces. We hope to collaborate again, this time on a piece for flute quartet and piano. The addition of the piano to the ensemble creates a new dimension within the composition, as since David himself is an outstanding pianist and amateur flutist, the combination is extremely exciting for him!

We have asked pianist Gordon Gerrard to work on this project with us, and we couldn't be happier to have him collaborating with us. Gordon's experience as an orchestral conductor and collaborative pianist makes him a huge asset in the creative process.

Your financial support towards the creation of this piece will support the creation of a new piece of Canadian contemporary music and a piece that will also reflect the stories and experiences of the LGBT+ community in Saskatchewan. We hope to premiere the work itself during the Pride festival in Saskatchewan in June of 2018 and hope for further performances elsewhere in Canada and around the world!

Risks and challenges

We are currently also applying for a grant from the Saskatchewan Arts Board to help fund the project itself. If that funding is not forthcoming or delayed, the composition itself may be delayed or the piece may be shorted slightly, but we are seeing it through to completion no matter what!
