  • Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, Rozsa Centre, University of Calgary Calgary Canada (map)

Women on the Verge was formed in 2016 by American soprano Emily Martin, Canadian soprano Elizabeth McDonald and Canadian pianist Kathryn Tremills. The Trio is connected by their mutual desire to tell the stories of women’s lives both past and present - the stories of celebration and condemnation, motherhood and loss, marriage and betrayal, breakdowns and breakups...the stories of every woman. "Expectations and Desires" features their new commission "Blue of the Distance" by Canadian composer Emilie LeBel as well as music by Hugo Wolf, contemporary American Composers Richard Pearson Thomas, Logan Skelton, Robert Spillman, Roberta Aldridge, and up-and-coming Canadian composer Cecilia Livingston.

Free and open to the public.
