Event Description

Burn Down the Capital, Venus Fest and the Music Gallery present a celebration concert of Beverly Glenn-Copeland's new album alongside local artist Teiya Kasahara.  

In the tumult of this world, there are constants. People need each other. Every motion brushes against others, moving. None of us are siloed and none of us are still. The music of Beverly Glenn-Copeland drinks deeply from these truths. For decades, the Philadelphia-born, Canada-based singer, songwriter, and composer has drawn myriad musical practices toward a single, luminous conviction: that music can shake us loose from what closes us off from each other. His multifaceted body of work surrenders to the beauty, pain, and great capacity for healing that courses through life; in its unguarded sincerity, it invites you to share in its courage. Glenn-Copeland's new album, The Ones Ahead -- his first collection of new music in nearly two decades -- deepens these explorations, casting searching light into how all of us must dissolve the harms of this world and carry each other forward into the next.

Opening the evening is queer/trans non-binary opera singer and theatre creator Teiya Kasahara. Heralded as “a force of nature” (Toronto Star), a “commanding presence” (Theatre Reviewer),  and “an artist with extraordinary things to say” (The Globe and Mail) Teiya comes from a background of nearly 20 years of singing both traditional and contemporary operatic roles across North America and Europe.
