To mark the 150th anniversary of Canada's Confederation, Quasar is commissioning 8 works by Canadian composers. Un compositeur sera retenu pour chacune des cinq régions suivantes: Maritimes, Prairies, Colombie-Britannique/Yukon, Ontario et Québec. One composer will be selected from each of the following regions: the Maritimes/NewFoundand, the Prairie Provinces, British Columbia/Yukon, Ontario and Quebec; the selection of the three other composers will be left to the jury's discretion.

This project, a veritable portrait in sound of new music, will fuel the creation of inspired works reflecting the diversity, creativity and depth of talent of artists from across the country.

Composers will participate in a series of research and creation workshops with the members of Quasar in the Fall of 2017.

This project is being carried out under the auspices of the Canada Council for the Arts New Chapter program in collaboration with Le Vivier and Western Front.
