ISCM Canadian Section succeeds in bid to host 2017 World New Music Days in Vancouver
The ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music) Canadian Section is pleased to announce that its bid to host the 2017 World New Music Days in Vancouver was unanimously approved!
ISCM Canadian Section President Jim Hiscott presented the bid in partnership with Vancouver-based organization Music on Main's artistic director David Pay during the recent 2014 World New Music Days in Wroclaw, Poland. After the bid was approved, Jim signed the official festival contract with ISCM President Peter Swinnen.
This marks a significant achievement, as the WNMD festival has been around for 91 years, and Canada has only had the privilege of hosting once before (in Toronto and Montréal in 1984). The week-long festival will showcase Canadian music on the international stage and will be attended by delegates from around the world.
See you in Vancouver in 2017!
