Prairie New Music Festivals Inc. No. 101202191 (PNMF) is an organization dedicated to managing and coordinating new music festivals that focus on Saskatchewan composers, public dissemination of art music, and music education.
The Strata New Music festival is the flagship project of the organization.The purpose of the festival is to entertain, educate, and enlighten the public and composers throughout Saskatchewan through concerts, masterclasses and discussions. This open sensibility to new music has prompted a wonderful diversity of contemporary classical, jazz, electroacoustic, free improvisation and other styles. PNMF is committed to creativity, and the very heart of creativity is to see music from different perspectives.
To this end PMNF encourages and promotes music creation from a diversity of people, especially from those who have been historically underrepresented in music composition.
