PARMA is excited to welcome the Winnipeg-based Harrington/Loewen Duo to our growing family of artists. PARMA will be releasing the duo’s CD “METROPOLIS,” an album of new music by Canadian composers, in 2014.
“[Their performance] was like a living, breathing thing, blossoming in the hands of these exceptionally capable musicians.” – The Winnipeg Free Press
Saxophonist Allen Harrington and pianist Laura Loewen, professors at the University of Manitoba Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music, have been performing together internationally for over 10 years. On METROPOLIS, you’ll hear commissioned works by Gordon Fitzell and PARMA composer Michael Matthews. This project will also feature compositions by Srul Irving Glick, Robert Lemay, and Diana McIntosh. Make sure to be on the lookout for more updates on Allen and Laura’s PARMA debut!
