ABOUT MUSIC ON MAIN

MOM -- Modulus -- Rothko Chapel-3 yes

Music that brings us together. “If there was any doubt that Vancouver is becoming a real nexus of musical creativity, its latest concert series should take care of that.”   (The Georgia Straight) That’s what the Georgia Straight wrote when Music on Main launched on October 3, 2006 with One Night Stand: Steve Reich, a one night festival of Reich’s music that was part of the international celebrations of the composer’s 70th birthday.  Artistic Director David Pay created the series with a promise of great music in casual but stimulating environments, with top-flight musicians, an ear for contemporary music, and refreshing concert formats. Since then, Music on Main has developed a growing local, national, and international reputation as storytellers for a post-classical age. At a Music on Main concert, there’s always great musicians and interesting, engaging music. And there’s always the chance to make new friends, meet the artists, and escape from your to-do list for an hour or two.

Music on Main has produced more than 250 events featuring in excess of 500 musicians and more than 50 world premieres at Heritage Hall on Main Street, the now-closed Cellar Restaurant and Jazz Club in Kitsilano, and venues throughout Metro Vancouver. The music has touched the souls of thousands of listeners, and we’ve helped artists from around the world connect with each other, and with Vancouver audiences. Our events take place in Vancouver’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. The Main Street Series happens at Heritage Hall, The Fox Cabaret and other intimate spaces located in the heart of the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, in East Vancouver.  Other events take place in unexpected and fun venues throughout Metro Vancouver. At Music on Main, you’re always welcome.

It’s an idea both simple and sophisticated: Why restrict quality music to the concert hall?” (The Vancouver Sun)

“Espouses the values of range, diversity, and excellence — words that should be a mantra for all arts producers in our post-millennial, multicultural society.” (Alex Varty, The Georgia Straight)

“Great show and programme…! I wish most classical concerts were as inclusive of the traditional and the sonically adventurous” (audience member)

“These concerts were the two best shows I have seen in a year – of ANY of the shows I have seen in that time. The city needs you & needs MoM. Thank you for a magical night!” (audience member)

“The highly popular series that’s as musically adventurous as it is socially gregarious” (The Georgia Straight)
