The Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound based in Waterloo Region uses unusual venues to present a very eclectic range of musics from new classical music to electroacoustic, musique actuelle and sound installation. Innovative and collaborative, the Festival works closely with other organizations to co-present activities or to include activities within our schedule. Our main centre of activity takes place in the Waterloo Region.
The focus of all events is the act of listening. Featuring a mix of local, national and international artists, concerts have featured ensembles from traditional ensembles such as string quartet, orchestra, choir to turntable art, multi-media, anachronism and dance. Concerts are presented indoors and out, in traditional concert halls and churches as well as alternative spaces, including abandoned buildings and parkades.
Catch a free preview of Montreal’s Lori Freedman and Marc Boivin, as they collide in a spontaneous improvisation at the Communitech Hub. Music and dance meet in the moment, proof that the Waterloo Region is a centre of both cultural and technological innovation! Presented by Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound
