Inside Us charts the delicate and dramatic convergence between technology and the human body. The concert features the premiere of Juliet Palmer's The Choreography of Trauma, Palmer's personal response to the Trauma Bay, oscillating between technical virtuosity and the emotional and physical stress of this life-and-death area of medicine.

We feature The Element Choir under the direction of Christine Duncan, and Jazz Soprano Laura Swankey with video and audio. Martijn Voorvelt's Frederick's doctor, for tenor Christopher Mayell and ensemble, rounds out this exploration of music and health sciences.

Continuum is delighted to participate in this interdisciplinary engagement with collaborators at Sunnybrook Research Institute.

This year's Teen Composer Award winner is Zack Payne. His new work for Continuum will be performed during a pre-concert presentation at 7:45.
