Lots of Music From Artists Coming to Ottawa and a feature on Philip Glass who will be at the NAC on Saturday, November 26 to receive the Glenn Gould Prize

The long title says it all... we spin a lot of great music tonight by artists coming to Ottawa and Wakefield (Esmerine and Xylouris White will be in a double bill at the Black Sheep this Thursday, November 24 while Tanya Tagaq will be at the NAC on Saturday night, Nov. 26 and Australia's Paper Kites will perform at Mavericks on Thursday, Nov. 24 and don't forget Slo' Tom at the House of Targ on Saturday, Nov 26) and feature the amazing sounds of Philip Glass. Philip Glass is a contemporary composer who has been generally included as part of the minimalist musical movement but he considers himself a classicist. He has written several symphonies, operas and pieces for chamber groups as well as music for solo performance and music to accompany dance works and film scores. He is prolific. On Saturday he will received the 11th Glenn Gould Award in a special ceremony/concert at the National Arts Centre - and as part of the evening the National Arts Centre Orchestra will perform his Second Symphony and some of his chamber music and music for solo piano will be performed. This will be a night of exceptional music in Ottawa so we listen to some of Glass's great works tonight.
