With a reputation for superb performance and ambitious programming, Aventa has established itself as one of Canada’s leading contemporary music ensembles. The ensemble is comprised of 15 musicians who are passionate about new music and its place in our culture. Pushing the boundaries through diverse projects, collaboration and cultural exchange, Aventa challenges the preconceptions of new music.
Founded in 2003, Aventa regularly commissions both Canadian and international new works and has presented premieres of over 50 works both in Canada and on tour. Under the artistic direction of Bill Linwood, the ensemble works closely with Canadian and international composers, developing instrumental techniques and refining interpretation as well as exploring projects which combines music with other art forms.
