Iris Trio Program Details, Winter 2023 Canadian Tour

Project Earth: The Blue Chapter

Iris Trio350Iris TrioCelebrated for their imaginative programming and powerhouse performances, the Iris Trio (clarinetist Christine Carter, violist Zoë Martin-Doike, and pianist Anna Petrova) returns to Canada for a much-anticipated tour. Together with distinguished Canadian poet, Don McKay (Governor General’s Award, Griffin Poetry Prize), they present the “Blue Chapter” of their multi-year “Project Earth,” including stunning new works by McKay and Juno-nominated composer/jazz pianist Florian Hoefner.

Project Earth is the Trio’s response to the triple planetary crisis. Through newly commissioned poetry and genre-crossing chamber music, the project strives to illuminate the impact of human behavior on the environment, addressing issues of climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss, while recognizing the power of our collective imagination to create meaningful change.
