Welcoming Cris Derksen to Latitude 45!
Updated: May 26, 2021
Latitude 45 Arts is very proud to announce that the Indigenous cellist and composer Cris Derksen is joining our roster.
Juno nominated Cris Derksen, originally from Northern Alberta, Canada, is an internationally respected Indigenous cellist and composer. Derksen braids the traditional and contemporary, weaving her classical background and her Indigenous ancestry together with new school electronics to create genre-defying music. As a composer she has her foot in many worlds working in choral, symphonic, film, theatre and dance, with a new commission from the Calgary Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra premiering in 2020. As a performer Derksen performs nationally and internationally. Recent destinations include Hong Kong, Australia, Mongolia, Europe, Mexico and a whole lot of Canada: the place Derksen refers to as home.
We are delighted to work with this innovative artist and look forward to seeing where our collaboration takes us.
