Celebrate with Soundstreams

Main Stage

Works by R. Murray Schafer, Steve Reich and Arvo Pärt, and three world premieres – a gala musical celebration of Soundstreams’ 30-year history and exciting future.

You are invited to Soundstreams’ 30th season opening party! Acclaimed works by contemporary masters R. Murray Schafer, Steve Reich, and Arvo Pärt are complemented by innovative compositions from today’s emerging artists – including a new interactive electroacoustic work that patrons can enjoy in the lobby before and after the concert, and during intermission. With its stellar line-up of performers, this not-to-be-missed event offers long-time friends and curious newcomers alike a celebratory taste of what Soundstreams is all about.
