21C festival returns for 3rd year

The Royal Conservatory has announced its 21C Music Festival will return for the third year.

The event will take place over five days: May 25 to May 29, 2016.

“This 3rd edition of the festival has allowed us to attract an even richer array of talent than in previous years. Opening the festival with the boundary-breaking Kronos Quartet, a stalwart of the contemporary music scene, exemplifies exactly what the festival seeks to do: continually search for the new, experiment, take risks, and bring new partners under our tent,” said Mervon Mehta, Executive Director of Performing Arts at The Royal Conservatory, in a press release.

The festival will have seven concerts, with music written mainly during the 21st century – like classical, Jazz and progressive rock.

21C opens with Kronos Quartet with special guest Tanya Tagaq.
