Emili Losier & Jenna Richards: The Way I Dream
Finnish-Canadian soprano Emili Losier is joined by pianist Jenna Richards (Chamberfest Director, Artistic Planning & Community Engagement) for a program featuring works by Canadian female composers. These works, centred around female-driven stories, bridge the gap between grand, romantic heights and gentle impressionist melodies.
