Twentyfive years ago three active individual new music series united to form GroundSwell, and we’re still going strong! Over the years, our four Artistic Directors – all composers – have presented a wide variety of unique concerts from small to large ensembles of musicians, experimental music, electronic, theatrical, multimedia and dance including many premieres of new works, in a host of different and unusual venues in Winnipeg. We have toured across Canada and to New York City, and presented at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and the WSO’s New Music Festival. We’re looking forward with great anticipation and excitement to share with you our very special 25th-anniversary celebratory season.
