Bold, experimental, and cutting edge, this year’s Festival is curated by Polaris Music Prize winner Owen Pallett, a renowned Canadian composer, violinist, keyboardist, and vocalist. The 2017 New Creations Festival fuses the pop- and classical-music worlds, with a touch of electronic music, a little dose of improvisation, and a blend of Aboriginal and folk sounds. To further enhance the Festival, concertgoers can enjoy an array of ancillary events—curated by Canadian composer Abigail Richardson-Schulte—including pre-concert performances, intermission chats, and post-concert parties (all included with concert tickets). The Festival also features two more free events: Composers in Conversation, a forum presented in collaboration with the Canadian Music Centre on March 7, and a noon-hour concert at the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre, presented in collaboration with the Canadian Opera Company on March 9. All New Creations Festival performances are part of Canada Mosaic—a Signature Project of Canada 150.
Guest artists include Canadian throat singer extraordinaire Tanya Tagaq, prominent Canadian violinist James Ehnes, distinguished pianist Yefim Bronfman, and the celebrated Kronos Quartet performing works by Nicole Lizée, Cassandra Miller, Owen Pallett, Nico Muhly, and more.
