This year is a big milestone for the Winnipeg New Music Festival. Twenty-five years of crazy, audacious programs. Twenty-five years of building a new canon of Canadian works. Twenty-five years of being the leading voice for new music in North America!
This year we look both back and forward with three world premieres from our past composers-in-residence. We invite groundbreaking American voices to Winnipeg. And we look forward into completely new lines of exploration with a commission from Stephen O’Malley.
You will see a snapshot of our society through extremes from the core of the symphonic tradition to unheard new sound worlds where time stands still. Through it all we will have conversation, art, food, music, and experiences that will challenge, stimulate and provoke.
