A Champion of Canadian Contemporary Music

A champion of contemporary music that has premiered over 100 new works from composers in Canada and abroad, the Penderecki String Quartet has three dozen recordings to their name, including a JUNO award for best composition.

This concert also features a work commissioned by our festival, written by the composer in residence of the Scarborough Philharmonic – Daniel Mehdizadeh.

There is something vividly distinct about Mehdizadeh’s music. This Canadian composer is revered for his intricate, unpredictable and haunting works. The sound and gesture of his pieces bury themselves deep in complex imagination, participating you in an exploration of uncertain visceral implications.

Dr. Daniel Mehdizadeh (DMA, University of Toronto) is currently based in the Greater Toronto Area and is the Composer-in-Residence for the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra (SPO).

The PSQ has been in residence at Wilfrid Laurier University since 1991 and an integral part of creative life in Southern Ontario throughout the past two decades.
