The Canadian Music Centre is pleased to announce the third annual Jean Coulthard String Quartet Readings, a seminar led this year by Composer Mentor Jennifer Butler, with quartets read and performed by the Borealis String Quartet, inspired by art from the internationally-recognized collection at the Rennie Museum in the historic Wing Sang Building in Chinatown. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Deux Mille Foundation, the seminar is free of cost for all participants.

In addition to the two readings and two performances of the works selected, one participant each year is selected to receive a music video of their work produced by Video Project Leader Thomas Beckman.
Named in honour of one of British Columbia’s most revered and beloved composers and teachers, the Jean Coulthard String Quartet Readings (the name is also an homage to the Vancouver Symphony’s Jean Coulthard Readings) allow emerging composers to gain experience writing for string quartet, along with the invaluable opportunity of having their pieces read, workshopped, rehearsed, and performed by a professional string quartet through sessions facilitated by a professional Composer-Mentor.
