Sonic Boom 2009

Vancouver Pro Musica is running their annual new music festival, Sonic Boom, from March 19 – 22 (Thursday – Sunday).  It’s at The Western Front, at 303 E 8th Ave (one block east of Main) at 7:30 each night.  Tickets are $20/10, and festival passes are $35 for all four nights.

“Four nights of new music?!” you say.  “What could be more awesome than that?!”  Well… I’ll leave that up to you to decide, but it should be pretty exciting.  There’s going to be a wide variety of music from neo-classical to electronics, some great ensembles, and lots of UBC composers on the program.  If you want to know what’s going on in contemporary classical music in BC, this is probably the #1 place to go.  Programs and details at
