The compositions will be performed live by CONTACT Contemporary Music, under the direction of Jerry Pergolesi. Program approximately 100 min., with intermission.
Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film. Presented with the help of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, the Toronto Arts Council, and the Socan Foundation.
