The 2018 Winnipeg New Music Festival opens with Philip Glass Symphonic.

Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Richard Serra, and Michael Snow changed everything in the arts in New York in the late ’60s with a revolutionary new aesthetic. At this historic evening, Philip Glass and Michael Snow, who both began recording their music on the same artist-run record label, will present new work in person. Glass will present the Canadian premiere of his Symphony No. 11, co-commissioned by the Bruckner Orchester Linz, Istanbul Music Festival, and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in honor of Glass’s 80th birthday in 2017. Snow, one of the world's foremost living artists and a central figure in North American art in the latter half of the twentieth century, working with Festival Curator Matthew Patton, will present his first-ever piece for orchestra. Local choir Horizon joins the orchestra in the world premiere of A Parable for End Times by WSO Composer-in-Residence and Festival Director Harry Stafylakis, a setting of an apocalyptic text by Winnipeg-raised author Steven Erikson.

Presented with the support of Michael Nesbitt

In supporting Michael Snow's commission for the 2018 Winnipeg New Music Festival, Meeka Walsh and Robert Enright are acknowledging Alexander Mickelthwate’s substantial contribution to the culture of our city
