criss cross Confluence New Works Calgary 2018-19 | season 35!

Music flows through our lives, across spaces and places, channeled by creators, players and listeners. New Works Calgary’s 35th season celebrates the organization’s role as a meeting place for new music practice and performance, as a node in a national and international network that promote a confluence of creative energies of composers, musicians and adventurous listeners.

A concert season of music moving through us: three programs of more than two dozen newly created Canadian compositions being swept across the land by three Canadian ensembles (Ensemble contemporain de Montréal, Quasar Saxophone Quartet, Ensemble Made in Canada), a program that crisscrosses music from north to sound bringing together the Ultraviolet Ensemble from Edmonton and Ensemble Resonance from Calgary, the admixture of sound and movement with an intimate performance by Vertical City (Toronto/Calgary), and voyages between the inside and outside, between the concert hall and the sounding world around us in a series of Soundwalks (M-Body Music) and educational school presentations (BacKpacK MusiQue). Come travel with us!
