novum musica 

This is the sixth iteration of our emerging composers program, this year co-presented by the Canadian Music Centre, and this year we’re thrilled to be welcoming Leslie Uyeda as Mentor-Composer.  A crucial part of the education program is the final showcase - we find such joy in sharing the new sounds created by the composers of the future!

Render

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our April 20th concert, formerly known as HUSK has transformed into Render. Render will feature Vancouver composer Joelysa Pankanea’s companion pieces on the death of her parents, The First Stage and The Fifth Stage, in which we’ll be joined by Meaghan Williams on bass, Martin Fisk on marimba, and Mark Takahashi McGregor on alto flute. 

In addition to these two works, we'll be performing music from American composers Brad Wells (Render) and Viet Cuong (Still So Much To Say), and rounding out the program will be two premieres: the world premiere Vancouver-based Innu composer Alex Vollant's Nukum, and the Canadian premiere of Indian-American composer Reena Esmail's She Will Transform You.

Ḵi’mola

Ḵi’mola is a program designed to highlight the importance of truly sharing and listening well to each other. Entering with the intention to learn and allow each other to take part in the leadership and responsibility of the event. No traditional feast is ever undertaken by just one person. The entire community pitches in with their talent, energy and good will to share in the creation of the feast. This builds community and is a wonderful way to learn and grow together. Music is the perfect platform for such an undertaking and we are creating a sound feast to share with our audience while we learn to work together in good and lasting relationships.
