Any given season brings Vancouver great classical concerts. But the city is specifically acquiring a reputation as a hot spot for “new music”: classical-style music written by living composers.
“This isn’t music that everybody listens to on the radio,” said David Pay, artistic director of the concert series Music on Main (M0M). “This is a little bit kooky.” (Better still: MoM is also Vancouverites’ only opportunity to crack a beer while listening to a string quartet play Morton Feldman.)
This November, MoM co-presented World New Music Days—kind of the Olympics of new music. It’s a chance to show we’re on the cutting edge of musical taste. “We’re a town that says, if you’re creating music, let’s listen,” says Pay.
