Arraymusic is an artist-driven contemporary music organization committed to creating and presenting speculative Canadian works within an international, interdisciplinary context. As performing ensemble, curator, commissioner, producer, venue, and educator, Arraymusic has been a leading advocate for Canadian composers for nearly 50 years. Through composer commissions, interdisciplinary collaboration, and boundless curiosity, Arraymusic creates music that finds wonder in the discovery of the unexpected and draws listeners into new musical worlds.
Founded in 1972 by a collective of student composers from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music, Array’s ensemble has toured worldwide, released nine CDs, and established Canada’s longest-running mentorship program for emerging composers - the Array Young Composers Workshop - in 1987.
Today, Arraymusic acts as a centre hub in the vast network of Toronto’s vibrant musical communities. In addition to Arraymusic’s own 14 concert season and outreach activities, The Array Space hosts over 600 concerts and rehearsals by nearly 350 groups and 2,800 individuals, encompassing a vast range of cultures, artists, collectives, and organizations from all walks of life.
