Event Details

NOW Society Ensemble from Vancouver has been setting the tone in the international avant-garde for decades, connecting contemporary classical to big band music and improvisation. ‘NOW? More like WOW!’ (The Georgia Straight).

NOW Society is Canada’s leading ensemble in the area of new music centering around improvisation. Since 1977 it brings together some of Canada’s finest musicians in various line-ups, from ensemble to orchestra. Many international composers were commissioned by NOW Society. The company has collaborated with both composing and performing musicians, such as Marilyn Crispell, Roscoe Mitchell, George Lewis, Pauline Oliveros, Ig Henneman and Anne La Berge. Since 2014 NOW is led by pianist/composer Lisa Cay Miller.

‘Canada’s premier avant-garde big band, NOW draws as freely from contemporary classical techniques as from the standard big band vocabulary’ (The Globe and Mail).
