August 2016 brought us to Europe for the first time as a quartet. With the tireless support of Mira Benjamin and Stine Sorlie of Nu:Nord and the dedicated team at NyMusikks Komponistgruppe, we toured the UK and Norway, performing concerts in Huddersfield, London, Oslo, and Bergen. We performed repertoire by Adam Basanta (CA), Caterhine Kontz (UK/Luxembourg), Stephen Harvey (UK), Peter Edwards (NO), Gyrid Nordal Kaldestad (NO), Hugo Harmens (NO), and Stine Sorlie (NO). In Norway we also collaborated with SISU Percussion and Melis Jaatinen, mezzo-soprano. SISU's beautiful studio in the hills overlooking Oslo provided the perfect backdrop for working with these artists, and our collborations were rewarding experiences. Of course, none of this touring could have happened without the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts touring grant for musicians.
