2020 Online Student Composer Symposium

June 29th to July 3rd, 2020

The Strata Festival of New Music is pleased to announce a new online opportunity to talk shop, and refine your jazz and folk song composing skills.

From June 29th to July 3rd come study with some of Canada’s most well known composers and jazz performers. This program is open to all young Saskatchewan musicians and composers.

Following the week of sessions there will be an online concert of selected student compositions performed by a pro band on July 4th.

Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, the regular scheduled programming for the 2020 Strata Festival has been cancelled

We have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 Strata Music festival scheduled for this June.

Please check back soon for more information about potential rescheduling of special performances for later in the summer, cautionary measures permitting.
