Acadia New Music Society : Shattering the Silence 2014

January 7, 2014
National

"The Acadia New Music Society exists to promote new concert music to the public. As with the pop-music world, concert music composers pour themselves into their works, usually in response to artistic encounters and life experiences. Yet, for a variety of reasons, it is relatively rare for the average person to hear their music performed in the world today. The Acadia New Music Society presents ‘Shattering the Silence’ as a music festival designed to give voice to the music of living composers, while concurrently celebrating the creation and performance of concert music by students at Acadia University, regional maritime composers and nationally renowned composers. During the festival we normally produce six concerts. We also include a substantial educational component consisting of workshops and lecture presentations. The role of our organization within our community, and the impact of the festival on the music milieu and audience is unique. We feel that our mandate and festival is critical in connecting established professional musicians with emerging voices, the great composers and performers of the future."
