PSWE is proud to present a full concert season at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam, BC.
This season the ensemble will explore, through a number of major works both original and transcribed, musical responses to our planet and life upon it. Full of humour, pathos and great melodies, the season will include collaborations with other artists and ensembles and contributions by local composers.

Then we find inspiration from the rocks and soil on which we live, and the physical monuments that we view with awe. Among the places we will explore are the Sonoran Desert, the Shenandoah River, the Isle of Man and the Rocky Mountains. We'll travel Down A Country Lane, frolic with Molly on the Shore and celebrate both Winter and Mother Earth herself! Christin Reardon MacLellan is our guest conductor.
