Friday, February 20 at 8pm – Hering Auditorium
Winners of the 2009 Mississauga Arts Council award for Best Emerging Performing Arts Ensemble, TorQ Percussion Quartet was formed by four Canadian percussionists looking to bring new vitality to percussion repertoire and performance. Renowned for their engaging performances, members Richard Burrows, Adam Campbell, Jamie Drake and Daniel Morphy are committed to making new music accessible to audiences that span generations and geography and have already performed to critical acclaim across Canada and beyond.
In addition to promoting new music, TorQ is actively involved in music education initiatives and performs approximately 70 school shows per year. They are also frequent educational collaborators with Soundstreams Canada and present master classes and workshops for various organizations across the country. All four members of TorQ are faculty members of the Durham Integrated Arts Camp, run by the Durham District School Board.
