New Music Edmonton presents Now Hear This: 5 days of new music and sound art. This will be New Music Edmonton’s 8th annual festival, and we have a lot of phenomenal sound-oriented creativity to ring in spring 2019. As always our programming for the festival draws on a wide array of sonic art practices and celebrates in only a few days not only an exhilarating collection of beautiful creative imaginations making sound-based art, but also the natural curiosity and open ears of Edmonton audiences. The dates of the festival are March 20-24, 2019.

An intern is needed to document concerts and events during the festival. Now Hear This lasts 5 days with many venues, receptions, performances and endless photo opportunities.
