The Acadia New Music Society promotes contemporary concert music in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Co-Directed by Derek Charke and Mark Hopkins, the primary outlet for this is an annual New Music Festival, SHATTERING THE SILENCE. The scope of the Acadia New Music Society’s activities has blossomed over the past eight years. We have successfully presented 48 concerts, including a CBC national broadcast, initiated the creation of three CD’s, and hosted multiple composers, musicians, and ensembles. Most of all, we have presented a fantastic collection of Canadian artists over these years. To see a complete list of concert programs and recordings visit the Acadia New Music Website.
