Described on Bravo TV News as a national treasure, Diana McIntosh has a very active career as a distinctive, original, witty, and innovative composer/pianist/performance artist. She has a dynamic stage presence, and has performed throughout Canada, widely in the USA, and in England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Portugal and in October, 2002, she gave 3 performances in Nairobi, Kenya.
In recent years she has attained a high profile for her one- woman, inter-disciplinary creations, in which she has explored singular ways of working with voiced texts in a theatrical relationship with music. As well as her own original texts, she also uses texts of well-known authors (Diane Ackerman, Gertrude Stein, Beryl Markham, Jon Whyte, Joy Harjo, Liliane Welch, and others). Her eclectic style ranges from the evocative and provocative to eccentric humour. Her repertoire also includes many works of other composers, particularly, though by no means exclusively, those of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Crescent Fort Rouge is thrilled to have Connie perform again in our acoustical gem of a church where her voice rings out in a way that can only be said is spectacular. Joining Connie will be her husband Paul, and sons Aleksi and Gabriel. Anyone who had the thrill of hearing Aleksi and Gabriel in Winnipeg in August with their new bands will certainly be first in the line-up for tickets!
Tickets are $31.50 (includes GST) and can be purchased at the church office from 9:30 to 12:00 Monday to Friday, by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or at McNally Robinson Booksellers.
