Requiem for a Glacier: Site Specific Performance


On July 27th, 2013 the performance of Requiem for a Glacier took place on Farnham Glacier by the Requiem Volunteer Orchestra and Chorus. The Farnham Glacier is one of the glaciers impacted directly by the proposed resort development. The performance was conducted by Ajtony Csaba of the University of Victoria Symphony and the soloist was Veronika Hajdu. The orchestra consisted of professional and amateur musicians primarily from the east and west Kootenay regions. The performance was for the glacier alone and there was no audience beyond the production crew.
