Every year, thanks in part to a generous Grant from the B.C. Arts Council, we are able to bring in a group of performers early before the Festival so they can work together to create a once-in-a-lifetime Collaboration just for us. These collaborations often become life-changing experiences for the Artists involved creating new life-long friendships and musical partnerships and for our audiences, well, don’t miss the opportunity to witness such a creative endeavour!
This years collaboration leader is the amazing Cris Derksen and her (already genre-bending collaborative) group, the Orchestral Pow Wow.
Cris Derksen plays with the intensity of a young musician who’s living the dream of creating new music and getting the chance to bring live to people. At the same time, the “new music” she’s creating is based in centuries and even millenia of the Metis and Aboriginal culture across Canada.
Her roots run back to Northern Alberta, to a line of Chiefs from North Tall Cree reserve on her fathers side and a line of strong Mennonite homesteaders on her mothers side. Growing up in Edmonton, she knew she wanted to play music and wondered about what instrument would be right for her. After narrowing it down to either bass or cello, chose the latter partly because she thought there would be less competition.

Spirit Horse is a powerful adventure of two Indigenous city children whose lives are changed forever by the appearance of a Spirit Horse – a gift from their grandfather who lives by the old ways on a prairies reserve.
