Silence and the Women's Institutes Present: Kith and Kin—The Coulsen Women's Institute
2:00 pm
A Multi-media Docu-musical written and performed by Anne Walker. 14 original songs, stories, vintage photographs, historical documents and artifacts.

Rural people created Canada—a cultural debt that is often forgotten and paved over today. The records of the Women’s Institute provide an important lens into Canada’s rural past. For over a century this organization has given rural women a voice and been a significant presence in the community.

Following the work of the women, singer-songwriter Anne Walker captures the spirit and vernacular of rural Canada—celebrating and preserving the stories and history of a way of life that is disappearing. Walker’s familial roots run generations deep in the central Ontario
village of Coulson. This personal connection to the community and to the women of the WI—including her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother—make this performance a moving and intimate tribute. “The Coulson Women’s Institute” is a loving and deeply human historical document.

Silence presents the SHIFT series: The Visit
8:00 pm
The Visit, comprised of Raphael Weinroth-Browne (cello) and Heather Sita Black (voice) is a musical dialogue that transcends genres and idioms. The duo's sound is characterized by long, tumultuous compositions reminiscent of another era, which nonetheless exude an undeniable sense of relevance and urgency.

Combining the structures and instrumentation of classical chamber music with the intricacy of Middle Eastern and Persian music and the emotional and rhythmic weight of metal, The Visit's lengthy, through-composed pieces conjure sonic worlds in which listeners can immerse themselves. The duo has garnered virtually unanimous praise for their incendiary live performances and secured coveted slots at Nouvelle Prague Festival in Prague, Czech Republic, Ottawa’s RBC Bluesfest, and the Royal Conservatory’s esteemed 21C Festival in Toronto. With their internationally acclaimed debut album, Through Darkness Into Light, The Visit is forging a musical path all their own.
