Winnipeg New Music Festival

After two years, the Winnipeg New Music Festival (WNMF) is back to shine in its full glory. The festival, which features world and Canadian premieres, exciting up-and-coming composers, and a unique venue, takes place from January 26 to February 3, 2023. “For over 30 years, the Winnipeg New Music Festival has been a feast of expanding horizons, breaking stereotypes, and exploding creativity!” says Daniel Raiskin, Artistic Director of the festival and WSO Music Director. “This January, our wonderful orchestra, outstanding guest artists, and featured composers will celebrate with you – our audience – an invigorating and breathtaking week of music that builds bridges into the unknown of the future – boldly and provocatively.”
