Newfound Music XII - February 4-6, 2015

The 12th annual Newfound Music Festival is right around the corner. Dates are February 4-6. We open our festival on Wednesday evening with an all ensemble concert at Holy Heart Theatre. The Toronto-based percussion quartet TorQ will be performing the regional premiere of Dinuk Wijeratne’s piece, "Invisible Cities", with the MUN Wind Ensemble. That concert will also feature the Holy Heart Concert Band and Chamber Choir, Munkapelli, and the MUN Chamber Orchestra.

Our composer-in-residence is Mark Duggan. He has composed a wealth of music, specifically for both gamelan and percussion. Mark and his music, along with MUN’s new Gamelan Sagara Asih will be front and centre on the Thursday concert.

We bring the festival to a close on Friday night with a potpourri of new music that will culminate in the always popular “Pint-Sized Encores”.

You will find the specifics for each concert below.
