Polaris prize winner Jeremy Dutcher is a classically-trained operatic tenor and composer who blends his Wolastoq First Nation roots into his music. Dutcher’s debut album, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, involves the rearrangement of 110-year-old recordings from his community. “…if you lose the language, you lose an entirely distinct way of experiencing the world.”
A one-of-a-kind music experience, Dutcher’s performance with the SSO is part of his orchestra tour of Canada sharing his artistry with Canada’s classical community.
