SHHH!! Ensemble is a piano/percussion duo that explores the boundaries of music through creativity and playing with complex sounds. Pianist Edana Higham and percussionist Zac Pulak work together to educate and engage communities through presenting programmes and introducing contemporary music to new listeners.
Just in time for the holidays, the Ottawa-based SHHH!! Ensemble duo, featuring Edana Higham on piano and Zac Pulak on marimba, created an adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s Russian Dance or “Trépak” from the Nutcracker Suite.
In the midst of this seemingly endless storm of fear, loneliness, and pain, music can serve as a vehicle of consolation, connection, and healing. With live performances on pause, many music festivals like Music & Beyond have shifted their 2020 programming online. In partnership with the Canadian Museum of Nature, they present Music & Nature, a series of virtual performances that embody or are inspired by nature.
