They will be joined by soloists Estelle Lemire and Genevieve Grenier both performing on the ondes martenot. Following up on our sold-out concert for the 2017 World New Music Days, we are very excited to offer this exciting concert for Vancouver audiences.

“The Turning Point players, under Owen Underhill’s direction, are magnificent.”

Turning Point Ensemble

Turning Point Ensemble

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Turning Point Ensemble is a large chamber ensemble (16 instrumentalists and conductor) recognized for its outstanding musicianship.  Founded in 2002 by its musician members, Turning Point has a mandate to increase the understanding and appreciation of music composed during the past hundred years, the ensemble has built a strong reputation for linking seminal 20th century repertoire to contemporary works through thoughtful programming and innovative presentations.  Uniquely and flexibly sized between a small chamber ensemble and a symphonic orchestra, Turning Point Ensemble presentations offer a symphonic palette with a chamber music sensibility.

Turning Point Ensemble has been recorded on numerous occasions by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC), has released four cds on the Artifact, Centrediscs, Atma Classique and Redshift Record labels, and toured Manitoba and Ontario with special guest Mezzo Soprano Judith Forst.  The ensemble also has initiated an educational program, “Creating Composers; Nurturing Life-Long Musical Expression Through Composition” that has received raves from the participating students, parents, and teachers.  

In 2010 Turning Point Ensemble was awarded the Rio Tinto Alcan Award for Music 2011 – the largest production prize for music in Canada for its presentation of FIREBIRD 2011, resulting in 4 sold out performances in March 2011 at The Cultch in Vancouver. 

We are proud to have presented a diverse range of repertoire, commissioned and performed works by Canadian and international composers, and partnered with a number of community and cultural organizations.
