Symphony Nova Scotia meets Upstream: Current Visions

January 8 @ 8:00 pm


Twenty-two years ago, Symphony Nova Scotia first joined forces with the original Upstream Ensemble to present a unique, collaborative concert that paired skilled improvising musicians with adventurous contemporary orchestral music. Since then, the Upstream Music Association and Symphony Nova Scotia have presented over a dozen of these concerts, and together have premiered over 30 new orchestral works that break stylistic and cultural boundaries.

This spirit of collaboration continues in 2019 as the Upstream Music Association once again joins forces with Symphony Nova Scotia to explore the creative energy that is released when contrasting attitudes and approaches come together to find a powerful common musical ground.

Come and hear brand-new works by Amy Brandon, Lukas Pearse, and Jeff Reilly, along with established works by Tim Brady, Bob Bauer, Erin Costelo, Paul Cram, and Christos Hatzis.
