The HUB Opening Night: Winnipeg New Music Festival
Sat, 28 Jan 2017, 7:00 PM – Sun, 29 Jan 2017, 2:00 AM CST
Remember how awesome it was when we last teamed up with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra?
We loved it so much we are doing it again!
We are excited to announce that for our next event we are presenting the opening night of the Winnipeg New Music Festival!
The main concert of the night is Meredith Monk's Canadian premiere of Weave for two voices, and the WORLD Premiere of Christos Hatzis' Syn-Phonia: Migration Patterns.
But the concert isn't the only big thing going on, we have a full night of art and experiences in store for you.
Friday Knights Clothing & Accessories is teaming up with Panache Management to put on a stellar fashion show. Zephyra Vun, creator of anARCHI design who curated the last "The Winnipeg Design Festival", is curating an art installation, and photography installation. We have DJs from MEMETIC and DJs Lauren Barnett (G-Ma Feelgood), and Kalliane Brémault playing the best tunes.
Later in the night, enjoy 'Procity", it will be an exhibition between B-Boys, Hip-Hop and contemporary dancers. The dancers will be paired up, each picking a song of their choice and dancing to their own song and the song of their opposite partner. Giving air to an exchange unlike a typical battle. This is a reciprocation, showing that the two worlds are one.
Carol-Ann Bohrn, Rachelle Bourget, Kalliane "Yofidelic" Brémault
Dela "Mooki" Awuyah, Winston "Prince Ifrit" Minge, Jeric "Jwreck" Sy
Bit Space Development and The Campfire Union are teaming up to bring you an interactive virtual reality art space. Enter a virtual music studio and create your own musical works on virtual drum kits, pianos and more.
We are happy to say that King + Bannatyne will be at the event selling their delicious gourmet sandwiches alongside the newest brew pub in the Exchange District, Little Brown Jug Brewing Company, who will be providing a free craft beer for everyone in attendance.
The whole event will be live streamed by Stream WPG, a free live-streaming concert series dedicated to elevating Winnipeg’s R&B, hip-hop and experimental emerging musicians. So even if you can't make it you can still see some of the performances by talented artists like Beatox and Malcolm-Jamal Wilson.
Get your tickets before it is too late.
See you all there.
