2016-2017 SEASON



Twenty­-five years ago, three separate new music series united to form GroundSwell—and we’re still going strong! Over the years, our four Artistic Directors have presented a staggering variety of unique concerts featuring small and large ensembles, experimental music and interactive electronics, as well as theatrical, multi­media and dance productions. We have premiered numerous works in a host of different and sometimes unusual venues across Winnipeg. We have also 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 sharing our very special 25th-anniversary celebratory season with you.
