What is Carrefour?
Carrefour is a two-year professional development opportunity for emerging, culturally diverse or indigenous composers with the NAC Orchestra. It is a joint initiative of the Canada Council for the Arts and the National Arts Centre.
Carrefour supports the advancement of unique voices in orchestral composition in Canada, through commissions, rehearsals and performances, collaborative projects and new media initiatives.
The first two Carrefour composers, selected in 2017, were Ian Cusson from Toronto and Remy Siu from Vancouver.
You can learn more about them on the Canada Council for the Arts' website.
