Description

TD presents African Heritage Month

Since 2020, George Elliott Clarke, the 7th National Poet Laureate (and self-identifying Africadian “exile”) has enlisted Canadian composers to set the poems of Canadian icons including Leonard Cohen, Louise Bernice Halfe, Gwendolyn MacEwen, and Al Moritz to music. 

Joining George for the latest edition of his patented series will be Afua Cooper, Amatoritsero Ede, Sylvia Hamilton, El Jones, and Monica Mutale. Come enjoy hearing the poets read from their works, and listen to how local composer Nevawn Patrick has set their poetry to music performed by vocalist Linda Carvery with pianist Holly Arsenault.
