Roberta Stephen is an icon in the Calgary music scene. She's an educator, composer and publisher of Alberta Keys, which specializes primarily in piano and vocal music for students. Stephen has published dozens of work by Canadian composers and her repertoire includes instrumental combinations, solo piano, vocal, choral and chamber music.
The Canadian Music Centre is paying tribute to Stephen with a free concert of her compositions on September 21, 2014.
The concert will feature performances by outstanding Calgary new music interpreters Stan Climie (clarinet), Colleen Athparia (piano) and Michelle Todd (voice), plus Cantaré Children's Choir, directed by Catherine Glaser-Climie. There will also be a student composition competition—the winning work will be published by Alberta Keys and the winner will receive a cash prize.
Funds raised will go toward putting on the concert as well as the competition's prize money.
