“Road Trip! A Pan-Canadian Tour” Coming to Acadia’s Garden Room
meagan&amy, a vibrant Canadian duo formed by violinist Amy Hillis and pianist Meagan Milatz, share an intense passion for innovative programming and fearless music-making. Praised for their energy, sensitivity, and musical maturity, meagan&amy are about to embark on the first ever Pan-Canadian tour, a partnership between Debut Atlantic, Jeunesses Musicales Canada, and Prairie Debut. The duo will launch this exciting initiative in Atlantic Canada for Debut Atlantic with seven concerts, including three concerts in Nova Scotian communities. From September 13-29, the duo will enthrall audiences with their program that cleverly pairs Canadian composers including Jocelyn Morlock, AndrÃ© Mathieu and Nova Scotiaâ€™s own Dinuk Wijeratne with well-known icons such as Mozart, FaurÃ©, and BartÃ³k. Exploring a uniquely Canadian soundscape, their program simultaneously reflects our past, our present, and our future.
The tour will include a new commission by Jocelyn Morlock. A joint commission for the Pan-Canadian partnerships, Atlantic Canadian audiences will be the first to enjoy this exciting work titled Alba.
meagan&amy will appear at the KC Irving Environmental Science Centreâ€™s Garden Room in Wolfville, presented by Sunday Music in the Garden Room, at 2:00pm on Sunday, September 22.
