Seven performances of this unique national composition competition that has marked the Canadian creative landscape for the past 25 years will tour the country in two stages. Due to the pandemic, the ECM+ will first visit nearby cities in October 2020 (Montreal, Quebec City and Orford), followed by more distant destinations in May and June 2021 (Ottawa, Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo and Vancouver).

Hosted by Gabriel Dharmoo and ECM+ Artistic Director Véronique Lacroix, who will also conduct the orchestra, this latest edition of Generation will present works by composers Bekah Simms (NL/ON), Gabriel Dufour-Laperrière (QC), Stefan Maier (BC) and Matthew Ricketts (BC/NY). Upon completion of the tour, they will share the various prizes, totalling $15,000, awarded by the prestigious Generation National Jury and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM), as well as the tour’s audiences, who will be invited to vote for their favourite piece.
