June 1, 2019 – Welcome

As SHHH!! Ensemble’s schedule continues to grow, we thought it would be nice to have a running tally of some of the bigger projects and ideas we are embarking on.

This summer SHHH!! will be performing at several Music and Beyond (Ottawa) events. We will also begin working on a new piece by John Armstrong titled The Angel’s Share. This piece will be featured on our upcoming Winter 2020 tour. More details to come soon.

Next fall, we are looking forward to performing at local concert series in Ottawa and Toronto as well as some TBD shows with Health Arts Ontario. Part of SHHH!! Ensemble’s mandate going forward is to work harder at introducing new audiences to new music. This summer we will be woodshedding a new programme that includes more traditional works by Bach, Poulenc, and Castelnuovo-Tedesco that we have transcribed, juxtaposed with new works by composers such as John Beckwith, Christine Donkin, Andy Akiho, and Andrew Staniland.
