First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Arts Commissioning Fund

Established in 2021, this fund exists to expand our circle of collaboration with artists from across Turtle Island.  

As musica intima seeks to decolonize our artistic practise, one step we've taken is the creation of a dedicated fund for the commissioning of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Artists.  Not limited to classical choral commissions, we look forward to collaborations with artists across disciplines.  We opened the fund with $5000 of our operating funding, and we invite you to donate specifically to this fund through our online donation form.

Our first commission is visual artist Sonny Assu. 

In addition to providing the poster art for Nagamo, Assu (Liǥwildaʼx̱w of the Kwakwaka’wakw Nations) has been commissioned to create a new work inspired by the program created by Andrew Balfour (composer/curator of Cree descent).  The work will be exhibited at the world premiere of Nagamo in May 2022.

YOUR SUPPORT IS OUR LIFEBLOOD

musica intima exists to create incredible moments—to share the power of music with our audiences, and invite them into our circle of sound. Your financial support of the ensemble’s professional performance, touring, recording, and community outreach initiatives remains invaluable. 

As with most not-for-profit arts organizations, ticket revenue only accounts for a small portion of our total budget. If you have been touched by musica intima’s performances, please consider a tax-deductible gift to the musica intima society. Your continued support of one of Canada’s musical gems is vital, allowing us to continue presenting world-class performances at home and abroad, and supporting generations of professional musicians. 

Thank you!
