Hello Everyone;

Letting you know that I have been a a part of the arts in Canada and much further abroad for the past 40 plus years. I continue my work as a composer, musician, arranger, music director, conductor, playwright, artistic director and record producer.

Here are some things that are happening for me right now.

A new season conducting the Sooke Community Choir has begun!

I am looking forward to begin rehearsals with The Marcus Mosely Chorale who will be singing a composition titled: Listening- with texts by Reneltta Arluk. The piece is a part of a Mortal Coil/Presentation House open air performance inspired by the Gulliver’s Travels story directed by Peter Hall.

Working away at a Canada Council commission to write a theatrical work based on the Chilcotin war of 1864. Working title: A Road Story

Still working on securing a  production of my full length concert work for mixed voices and instrumental ensemble titled: The Five Seasons. This work was made possible by a generous gift from Haida Robert Davidson and a substantial grant from the music division of the Canada Council.

Thanks for the ‘still under construction’ visit. Much appreciated.


Here’s my email address: bruceruddell123@gmail.com
