White Sparrow formed in 2011 as a collaboration between Canadian mezzo-soprano, Debi Wong and Norweigan lutenist, Solmund Nystabakk. This Helsinki-based duo is dedicated to presenting and cultivating an interest in lute and vocal music from the Medieval period though the early Baroque.

 

 Since their debut in 2011, White Sparrow has presented a number of recitals, including: “Short Stories From The English Renaissance” and “Songs from Renaissance Europe” at Arkadia International Bookshop in Helsinki, and “Iltavirsiä (Evening Hymns)” as well as “Kolme Kuningatarta” (A Tale of Three Queens) on the Malminkirkko Concert series in Helsinki, and “Midnight with Mr. Dowland” in SØrfold, Norway.  The duo recently performed “La Musa, La Musica” on the Sibelius Academy Doctoral Series as a part of Ms. Wong’s studies in early music and storytelling.  In July 2012, White Sparrow was selected as the winner of the NORDEM EAR-ly competition for young early music ensembles in Scandinavia.

 

In their 2012 – 2013 season, White Sparrow will make its debut in Sweden and North America, appearing on the Stockholm Early Music Festival Early Late Night Concert Series, as well as the Silk Purse Music Series in West Vancouver BC; the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Out For Lunch Recital Series, and the Midtown Concert series presented by Gotham Early Music Scene in New York City.
