Come with us to Ottawa for a special night featuring the debut of a work by Canadian composer Jim Hiscott. Initially commissioned in 1978 by Don MacMillan (grandson of Sir Ernest) with a grant from the Ontario Arts Council, Hiscott and clarinetist James Campbell have been diligently adapting Midnight Strut, an alto-saxophone arrangement, for clarinet. Hiscott dedicated the work to Campbell, and tonight we'll hear Campbell himself perform it. With a program also featuring works by festival favourites Schubert, Juon and Tchaikovsky – tonight's concert promises to be nothing less than monumental.
