5th Oak Bay New Music Festival

It was an honour and a pleasure to be part of the 5th edition of the Oak Bay New Music Festival this year!

We celebrated this milestone by performing under performed (or world premieres) pieces written by established composers from several places in the world and throughout 20th century music history! We also welcomed the Dutch accordionist and friend Erica Roozendaal who performed folk Dutch music, Klezmer Music, as well as pieces by local composers, such as yours truly (recordings soon to come)!


The Victoria Composers Collective is really grateful for our community’s support, for everyone who came to our festival from different places in British Columbia, to our partners and sponsors (Oak Bay Music SocietyCanadian Music Centre in B.C., University of Victoria, School of Music, and Thrifty Foods), and to the local news, Oak Bay News, Victoria News & Monday Magazine!

About memmmusic

I am a music student who enjoys writing and making sense out of the things I experience in relation to music, to external situations in my life, or (as it normally is) to both of them at the same time. New Music is a field of contemporary composition that provokes many thoughts and questions, and as an apprentice in the field, I felt like it would be a good idea to share my thoughts and learnings about it.
