Music on Main

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR DAVID PAY

Music on Main has a reputation as storytellers for the post-classical age, connecting artists from around the world with each other and with Vancouver audiences.

Its 12th Annual Concert Series begins with the Australian String Quartet featuring Dale Barltrop, concertmaster for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and continues with leading Canadian pianist Jane Coop. The ISCM World New Music Days 2017, co-hosted by Music on Main, will be the largest gathering of contemporary music in Canada’s history, and beloved favourite Music for the Winter Solstice returns to brighten the year’s darkest days. Taking the stage in the new year is Frederic Rzewski’s Songs of Insurrection with Daan Vandewalle (piano) and John Luther Adams’ Ten Thousand Birds, directed by homegrown talent Vicky Chow (piano), whom the Los Angeles Times calls the “new star of new music.”

The popular series A Month of Tuesdays features saxo- phone quartet Quasar, Montreal’s Kiya Tabassian (setar) with Estonia’s Maarja Nuut (violin & voice), VSO concertmaster Nicholas Wright (violin), Emerge on Main’s Spotlight on Rising Musicians, and Nicole Lizée’s One Night Stand. The season closes with legendary Canadian pianist Robert Silverman’s 80th Birthday Celebration.

Discover great music. Escape your to-do list. At Music on Main, you’re always welcome.

I wish most classical concerts were as inclusive of the traditional and the sonically adventurous. –Music on Main Patron
