The Atrium (111 West Hastings at Abbott)

5:00 – 6:00 pm – Performance
2:00 – 4:00 pm – Open Rehearsal


The Woodward’s Atrium, one of Vancouver’s most important indoor public spaces created in Vancouver in the last decade will reverberate with the sound of stringed instruments played by some of Vancouver’s top musicians and improvisers.

Music will be improvised, composed and performed to complement and incorporate the acoustics of this large reverberant space. The program will include the premiere of commissioned works by Peggy Lee, Bradshaw Pack and Josh Zubot. Ten musicians from Vancouver’s jazz and classical music scenes will fill the Atrium with vibrant music immersing those attending in sounds only possible in such a cavernous space.

An open rehearsal will be held in the Atrium before the performance for those interested in seeing how the music is prepared and rehearsed within a large public space and within a short time frame.


The Hard Rubber New Music Society gratefully acknowledges the support of the BC Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, the City of Vancouver through Cultural Services and the Province of British Columbia through Community Gaming Grants.
