On the rapidly decaying heels of the zombie composers unleashed by the CPO, comes the chance to run elbows with a living, breathing composer.
The opportunity to meet and hear Diana McIntosh comes courtesy of the Canadian Music Centre and ProArts.
McIntosh will perform her piece Aunt Kate Wednesday as part of the ProArts@Noon Concert Series. The piece for solo piano and spoken word based on the life of McIntosh’s quirky aunt, a colourful character who lived in Banff, making this performance a homecoming of sorts.
On Thursday (also at noon) McIntosh will be at Gallery Hall in the Taylor Family Digital Library at the University of Calgary. That event is billed as a “composer speak easy,” with McIntosh chatting and answering questions about life as a Canadian composer.

Wednesday, March 6, noon, Cathedral Church of the Redeemer, 218 7th Ave. S.E. Free.
Thursday, March 7, noon, Gallery Hall, Taylor Family Digital Library, U of C. Free.
