Back in Victoria for SALT New Music Festival!

After the pandemic forced us to take a short break in 2021, the SALT New Music Festival is back at the University of Victoria! Presented by Tsilumos Ensemble in collaboration with Victoria Composers Collective and Quasar Saxophone Quartet, there will be a total of three live-streamed concerts followed by an après-concert discussion session with performers, composers, and audience members. Quasar will participate in two of these three concerts.
