Vancouver New Music is getting ready to celebrate four decades of bringing contemporary sounds to local ears.
The organization plans to mark the milestone with a year of special programming in 2013-2014 including a 40th-anniversary retrospective festival, concerts, and other events. Details have yet to be announced.
Founded in 1973, Vancouver New Music promotes the work of local, national, and international artists through a variety of activities. The organization produces live performances, commissions new works, presents sound installations, and holds other events.
A private kick-off event for the anniversary celebrations takes place later this month.
