For 40 years, Continuum has been at the forefront of supporting groundbreaking and innovative ideas in contemporary chamber music, showcasing a unique and compelling approach to programming that continues to captivate audiences. Under the guidance of Artistic Director Ryan Scott and Operations Manager Christina Volpini, Continuum has established a reputation for presenting impactful concerts that often incorporate interdisciplinary collaborations with a broad range of partners and participants.

Continuum has commissioned more than 300 works from early-career and established Canadian and international composers, recorded three critically-acclaimed CDs, and established an online archive that documents all of its activities, recordings, and practices since 1985. Continuum has also toured extensively throughout Canada and Europe, showcasing the work of Canada’s contemporary music performers and composers.

Continuum has simultaneously created multiple mentorship opportunities with the aim of growth and development in our art form: HATCH, our annual summer music mentorship program for early-career composers, performers and conductors; PIVOT, our biennial national early-career composer project with the Canadian League of Composers and the Canadian Music Centre; our annual Teen Composer Award; and Continuum in the Classroom now with over 75 world premieres and engagement with over 7000 TDSB students.
