Soundstreams showcases the work of Canadian and international composers through innovative musical experiences.

Soundstreams’ Emerging Composer Workshop Showcase

Soundstreams’ Emerging Composer Workshop Showcase is presented in honour of Jim Doherty, and his timeless dedication to investing in young talent.

Each year six talented young composers converge in Toronto for this unique mentorship opportunity. This year, Soundstreams has invited Unsuk Chin, regarded as one of the most sought after creators of contemporary music, and Canadian Chris Paul Harmon lead the workshop.
