An Interview With Mike Tanner
Event Start: 6PM
The Music Gallery, 197 John St.
Toronto’s recently appointed Music Development Officer Mike Tanner was hired in the wake of the the Ford Brothers-driven Austin-Toronto music initiative of 2013. The Music Gallery, along with the Canadian Music Centre and the Toronto New Music Alliance, wants to know how this new position could affect classical and new music in our city.
Join us for an interview between Tanner and Music Gallery Artistic Director David Dacks. We’ll focus on topics affecting contemporary classical and new music in Toronto such as how, in a city full of bands, can non-band oriented music projects fare? How can experimental music achieve success accessing the same channels as more popular forms? How can a Music Development Officer promote both hierarchically organized big business musical initiatives and independent, community-oriented ventures? Bring your own questions, then stay for the subsequent concert by the Thin Edge New Music Collective.
