Where: Theatre

Celebrated for their imaginative programming and powerhouse performances, the Iris Trio (clarinetist Christine Carter, violist Zoë Martin-Doike, and pianist Anna Petrova) returns to St. John’s for a much-anticipated tour.

Together with distinguished Canadian poet, Don McKay (Governor General’s Award, Griffin Poetry Prize), they present the “Blue Chapter” of their multi-year “Project Earth,” including stunning new works by McKay and Juno-nominated composer/jazz pianist Florian Hoefner.

Dr. Bill Montevecchia renowned seabird expert and John Lewis Paton Distinguished University Professor of Psychology, Biology, and Ocean Sciences at Memorial University will join us as a speaker for this special event. 

Project Earth is the Trio’s response to the triple planetary crisis. Through newly commissioned poetry and genre-crossing chamber music, the project strives to illuminate the impact of human behavior on the environment, addressing issues of climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss, while recognizing the power of our collective imagination to create meaningful change. 

Doors open at 7:00 pm.

Ticket cost $28.75 (10% Discount for Rooms Members). Tickets can be purchased in-person at the front desk, online, or by calling 709-757-8090.
