Marion Newman & Continuum co-winners of Friends of Canadian Music Award 2022!
We are thrilled to have been selected as a co-recipient of the Friends of Canadian Music Award 2022! We are honoured to share this award with mezzo-soprano Marion Newman, who has been a close collaborator through the years. The award is given by the Canadian League of Composers in partnership with the Canadian Music Centre to recognize exceptional commitment to elevating Canadian composers and/or sound artists.
We have chosen to share this award with composer Amy Brandon, and Marion shares the award with composer Jessica McMann.
The announcement from the Canadian League of Composers reads: “In addition to recognizing artistic and career accomplishments, the jury – comprised of Mark Takeshi McGregor, Keiko Devaux, Saman Shahi, and Matthew-John Knights – believed it was important for this year’s award to acknowledge the extraordinary events and the important conversations that have taken place in all parts of our community throughout these past difficult few years. They were adamant that, in addition to their successful track records as performers, both Newman and Continuum deserved recognition for stepping up during these difficult times.”
