The CMC national library contains some 25,000 works by nearly 900 composers. The CMC Library Residency is designed to shine a light on these exciting works. In many ways, the resident artists act as interpreters of the CMC collection, offering a personal glimpse into the historical, cultural, and artistic significance of various pieces.
What biographical information about the composer and performers should Canadians know? Do these works impact you as an artist/listener today? In 2018, CMC Ontario will provide an honorarium to two artists to actively engage with the CMC library and generate blog posts highlighting various pieces in the collection, and injecting life into pieces that are often forgotten or overlooked.
