WMCT Commissions to Canadian Composers

Zoshi Di Castri’s presentation score of her new work premiered April 7, 2016, “Dannthology”. 

Since 2005 the WMCT has commissioned a new Canadian work each season, to be performed in a Music in the Afternoon concert.  Scores are deposited in the permanent collection of the Canadian Music Centre.

Di Castri’s 25-minute-long score will have pride of place in the first concert led by Alexander Shelley as NACO’s seventh music director.
