ECM+’s Generation 2018 returns to the NAC! Crossing Canada from West to East for the 10th time since 2000, this uniquely Canadian Tour, conducted by Véronique Lacroix, presents a new edition of this now legendary project. Considered one of the most important composition competitions in the country, composers Sophie Dupuis (NB), Patrick Giguère (QC/Birmingham, UK), James O’Callaghan (BC/Montréal) and Thierry Tidrow (ON/Cologne, Germany) were selected in the summer of 2017 by the jury of Generation 2018. Eight Canadian cities will host the ECM+ tour: Banff, Calgary, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Montréal, Québec City, Toronto and Ottawa. The audience in each of the eight destinations of Generation 2018 will get to choose the winner of the Audience Choice Award by voting for their favourite piece.
