shannon-graham-50Saturday September 2, 2017: A day of performance taking place in the heart of Toronto at Yonge-Dundas Square from 2-10pm. Robert Everett Green of the Globe and Mail describes the event as “a marathon of sound in the middle of traffic.”

DIALECTICA SAX QUARTET
2:15 – 2:45pm / Stage 1
Shannon Graham (tenor sax), Chelsea McBride (baritone sax), Olivia Shortt (alto sax), and Jennifer Tran (soprano sax) blur the lines between jazz and classical traditions. Both Graham and McBride sit in the composer’s chair along with Javier Vazquez, who all also write for Spectrum Music. Dialectica sees the group play with latin themes, minimalism, and not to mention dipping into new age territory at times. Leaving the idea of genre at the door they are able to traverse a varied musical landscape. Keeping a cohesive voice through a their playful voice & dialogue.
