Sound Symposium

Sound Symposium

July in even-numbered years
The Sound Symposium is an international music and arts festival held every two years in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. The symposium features an eclectic mix of artists whose work involves the innovative or masterful manipulation of sound, and hopes to inspire rising artists to explore new avenues in music, performance art, and the visual arts.
Performances take place in a variety of locales, from concert halls to the streets, and from old army bunkers to the beach. They include dance, theater, performance art, gallery exhibitions, and all kinds of music. Participants may sample new expressions in jazz, electronic music, percussion, rock and roll, classical, folk music, experimental music, world music, improvisational music, and experiments with newly invented instruments. The musicians who participate in the "Harbor Symphony," for example, board boats and play compositions written for the various whistles and horns on board. Symposium participants may also join workshops led by the guest artists.
