It is with great pleasure that we can announce that Canadian-born, Scotland-based composer Emily Doolittle has joined Composers Edition. Doolittle has been commissioned by such ensembles as Orchestre Métropolitain, Tafelmusik, Symphony Nova Scotia, the Paragon Ensemble, and Ensemble Contemporain de Montreal and her music described as as ‘eloquent and effective’ (The WholeNote), ‘masterful’ (Musical Toronto), and ‘the piece…that grabbed me by the heart’ (The WholeNote).
Doolittle has just completed her wind quintet Woodwings, which will be workshopped by Fifth Wind quintet in Halifax, NS, Canada in May, and premiered by a consortium of wind quintets from across Canada in September: windquintet.international/project/our-canada/. We look forward to making this available alongside more than a dozen works including works for solo piano, solo flute, soprano, viola d’amore and her Seven Duos for birds or strings.
Also in May. musicians from the Vancouver Symphony will be performing A Short, Slow Life at The Annex in Vancouver on May 13. Life : vancouvercivictheatres.com/events/vso-at-the-annex-a-short-slow-life-may-13-2018/.
We look forward to bringing more of Doolittle’s music to wider attention.Emily Doolittle Profile & Works
