Events Description

Agassiz Chamber Music Festival features renowned musicians every June, from across Canada, the US and overseas. Est. 2000.

The Agassiz Chamber Music Festival was founded by cellist Paul Marleyn, the Festival’s Artistic Director, in collaboration with the University of Manitoba School of Music (now The Desautel Faculty of Music) in June 1999. The Festival is named after Lake Agassiz, the ancient and vast lake that covered large parts of Manitoba as well as parts of Alberta, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Saskatchewan and Ontario.

The Festival has been instrumental in the presentation of the International Cello Festival of Canada in 2011 and in 2014 in collaboration with the Winnipeg Arts Council. In addition to performances of cello sonatas and concertos, both cello festivals featured master classes, competitions, outdoor performances and premieres of cello orchestral works: a double cello concerto by Jocelyn Morlock in 2011 and a triple cello concerto by Vincent Ho in 2014.

To date the Agassiz Chamber Music Festival has premiered 12 commissioned works by Canadian composers and has performed an additional 29 Canadian works.
