Jeremy Dutcher at Glendon
Jeremy Dutcher is a classically trained operatic tenor and composer who takes every opportunity to blend his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates, blending distinct musical aesthetics that shape-shift between classical, traditional, and pop to form something entirely new. Dutcher’s debut release, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, involves the rearrangement of early 1900s wax cylinder field recordings from his community.
The conference will be followed by a reception from 5pm to 7pm in the BMO Skyroom.
This conference is part of the initiatives suggested by the Glendon Indigenous Council. The Glendon Indigenous Council, over the last year, produced an action plan to propose concrete ways of acting on the Glendon Indigenous Strategy. One of the proposed actions was to hold a yearly cycle of conferences by Indigenous speakers from diverse backgrounds including, but not limited to, scholars, activists and artists. This is the first of these conferences.
This conference is made possible thanks to the Indigeneity in Teaching and Learning Fund, the Office of the President of York University, the Office of the Principal of Glendon College, the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, the Centre for Research on Language and Culture Contact and the Glendon School of Public and International Affairs.
