Child With The Starry Crayons

CHILD WITH THE STARRY CRAYON (2004) is the result of a collaboration between the ORIANA Women’s Choir and the Toronto District School Board. Six composers were commissioned by the choir to set selected student poetry to music for our special Poetry and Music Project. With the generous assistance of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Laidlaw Foundation, and the Harbinger Foundation, the choir commissioned Stephen Chatman, Eleanor Daley, Ruth Watson Henderson, Donald Patriquin, Imant Raminsh, and Mark Sirett to select students’ poems and set them to music. Released Fall 2004.
