The Department of Music presents Farm-to-Table: Fresh Local Music, a cutting edge concert experience performed by mixed quartet UltraViolet, and featuring original contemporary music by Albertan composers. 

Named in honour of Dr. Violet Archer, a former professor in the U of A Department of Music and Member of the Order of Canada (1983), UltraViolet pays tribute to the late Dr. Archer who is not only recognized as a leader among women composers, but co-founded the Alberta Composers’ Association and had significant impact on the development of Canadian composers.

In the spirit of Archer’s work, Farm-to-Table: Fresh Local Music highlights the contemporary music ecosystem in Alberta. This concert features music created almost entirely by Albertan composers - Brian Garbet, Emilie LeBel, Dave Wall, Ian Crutchley and Alexander Prior - making the experience of preparing for this concert especially fresh, intimate and alive.

UltraViolet promises a cutting edge experience with virtuosic music performed by an agile and effervescent mixed quartet of musicians: Allison Balcetis (saxophone), Roger Admiral (piano), Chenoa Anderson (flute) and Amy Nicholson (cello).
