Between Composers: Correspondence of Norma Beecroft and Harry Somers, 1955-1960

Brian Cherney, coordinator

Between 1959-1960, composers Norma Beecroft and Harry Somers exchanged over 200 letters that reveal much about their romantic relationship at the time, and give a sense of the landscape of Canadian composition at that point in time. This event features music written by both composers during this time period, excerpts from the original letters read aloud, and more.
