The theme of this concert features works written by living composers that address social issues, equality, environment and peace.

Featuring a new commissioned premiere for choir and electronics: Unheard: Voices of the Children, which tells the stories of bullied children by Dr. Laura Sgroi. This composition was awarded a 2018 Ontario Arts Council grant and uses the voices of children narrating their own experiences, as the choir provides an accompaniment. There will be an in-concert talk about this piece by Dr. Sgroi.

You will also hear works by Toronto based composers Matthew Emery, Jacqueline Teh and Saman Shahi. Other composers include Eric Whitacre and Estonian composer Pärt Uusberg.
