We are aiming to raise $3000 to provide artist honoraria and production costs for the final concert of our 2017-18 season - Fusing: Premieres VII: An evening of Interdisciplinary premieres featuring 6 new works by emerging artists from around the world.

About Thin Edge New Music Collective (TENMC):

Thin Edge New Music Collective (TENMC) is a Toronto-based ensemble dedicated to ingenuity and collaboration in the programming and performance of contemporary music.  Founded in 2011 by co-artistic directors pianist Cheryl Duvall and violinist Ilana Waniuk, TENMC has performed across Canada, Italy and Argentina, with upcoming tours to Poland, Japan and Germany. TENMC has commissioned over 60 works from composers across Canada and beyond. Thin Edge has established a reputation as “one of Toronto’s hottest and bravest new music collectives” (Musical Toronto), and “one of the city's most forward-thinking DIY chamber ensembles“ (Mechanical Forest Sound). TENMC is passionately dedicated to supporting their peers through commissioning and performance, bringing innovative and eclectic 20th and 21st century music to audiences both existing and as yet untapped.

About Fusing: Premieres VII:

Each season TENMC presents a concert dedicated entirely to commissioning and premiering new works by emerging composers from Canada and beyond.

This year, we travel outside the new musical box with a twist on our annual premieres series. Fusing will include 6 new interdisciplinary premieres fusing new music with dance, circus, literary, visual, theatrical and media arts by emerging artists for near and far, including: Kaie Kellough + Jason Sharp, Rebecca Leonard, Juro Kim Feliz, Amy Hull, Dan Tapper, Viola Yip, Patrick McGraw, Janet Sit and Sonja Rainey.

Our Campaign:

Here at Thin Edge, we prize working with incredible emerging artists from around the world! We feel it is imperative to create a platform for early career musicians, composers, and artists of other disciplines to develop their individual voices in a welcoming, collaborative environment alongside some of the most exciting young performers of contemporary music. We want to create abundant opportunities for emerging artists by producing high caliber musical experiences for everyone involved, from conception to premiere!

To do this, we are asking for help from our community.
