Vancouver’s Turning Point Ensemble is a dynamic 17-member chamber ensemble of some of Canada’s most exceptional musicians dedicated to increasing the understanding and appreciation of music composed during the past hundred years. For their ArtSpring concert they bring us Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals and other repertoire yet to be decided from the early 20th Century.
“I did wonder how a chamber orchestra would pull off Stravinsky’s Firebird, but the Turning Point Ensemble sounded magnificent and Michael Bushnell’s arrangement gave it a transparency that was amazingly fresh and vibrant.” – 2011 AUDIENCE MEMBER
