Artistic Director David Schotzko curated and Executive Director Sandra Bell designed this e-zine called ’50 Works For 50 Years’ which contains a curated selection of 50 links celebrating Array’s community – works which were shared on our Facebook for 50 days leading up to Array’s 50th Anniversary on April 20, 2022.
Some are single pieces of music, others whole concerts, some are performances by the Array Ensemble or at The Array Space, and many are by friends, colleagues and even occasionally people we don’t know but are connected to by only a few degrees of separation. All the Artistic Directors are represented, as well as many of Array’s past commissions from composers established and emerging across Canada and abroad. There are household names, and a few surprises as well.
It was a challenge to encapsulate 50 years of creative music making and community building into such a short grouping of things to listen to. The possibilities were endless and we know we could have made five more just like this and not run out of material.
