Remembrance Day Concert
Carmen Braden Live in Concert
+ Album fundraiser
For Immediate Release – November 4, 2018
Carmen Braden is embarking on her second studio album, titled Songs of the Invisible
Summer Stars. Carmen will be joined once again in this creative work by the producer from her first album Ravens, Mark Adam (percussionist, producer, professor at Acadia University). This album will be a powerful statement of Carmen’s compositional works, and will be recorded in April 2019 in Nova Scotia. Five of her best contemporary chamber compositions will be performed by musicians who share a passion for new works by Canadian composers, including Carmen herself, Mark on percussion, and other players – many of whom regularly perform in Canadian orchestras. The recordings will be captured by award-winning recording engineer John D. S. Adams. Several other works will be included that delve into Carmen’s songwriting oeuvre, and the album will feature their creative connection to the instrumental compositions in a unique and intriguing way.
To catalyze the recording process, there will be a concert on Thursday November 15, 2018 at the Museum Auditorium starting at 7:30pm featuring Carmen and Mark, as well as local
Yellowknife musicians Pat Braden, Kathryn Oraas and Al Bee. Admission by donation
An online fundraising campaign through Indiegogo runs until early December to support the project.
