Join us for the launch of Hamilton guitarist Emma Rush’s new album, A Dream of Colour, inspired by the paintings of William Blair Bruce.
In 2020 Rush commissioned seven new works from Canadian composers to create a repertoire for solo guitar that explores Bruce’s artistic practice and shares the magic of his paintings through sound.
The result is a stunning collection of music by Amy Brandon, Christine Donkin, Dale Kavanagh, Jeffrey McFadden, Daniel Medizadeh, Craig Visser, and Christina Volpini.
Hear these pieces performed live for the first time!
