As a Garden Waits for Rain

On April 23, the Waterloo Chamber Players premiered a new work under the direction of Ben Bolt-Martin, with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and Waterloo Regional Arts Council. The performance featured Debjani Bandyopadhyay, Tagore Singer; Ravi Naimpally, Tabla player; Brian Otto, poetry reader; and Enakshi Sinha, Odessa Dancer. Three orchestral movements are inspired by the songs of Rabindranath Tagore… before the orchestral movements, a sound journey featuring instruments from Vancouver’s Gandharva Loka World Music¬†and organized by Vilupti Lok Barrineau. Sincere thanks to all who were involved in this very special performance. Thanks to Clara and Zoe Fretz Corlis for taking the photos shown here. Special thanks to Surajit and Sumita Biswas for encouraging and supporting the idea of a cross cultural event. We are so fortunate as a result of your inspiration.
