What is Carrefour?
Carrefour is a two-year professional development opportunity for emerging, culturally diverse or Indigenous composers with the NAC Orchestra, that supports the advancement of unique voices in orchestral composition in Canada, through commissions, rehearsals and performances, collaborative projects and new media initiatives.
It is a joint initiative of the Canada Council for the Arts and the National Arts Centre.
We are also happy to announce we have offered a special Carrefour commission to composer John Kameel Farah.
The inaugural Carrefour composers from 2017-2019 were Ian Cusson from Toronto and Remy Siu from Vancouver.
You can learn more about them on the Canada Council for the Arts' website.
