Xenia Concerts & NAaC present – the Sound.colLAB Videos!

This past Summer (2022), Xenia Concerts, National Access Arts Centre, and seven incredibly unique artists took off on an adventure to co-create an original piece of music under the mentorship of nine professional musicians. With the support of Juno-award nominated composer Bekah Simms, the award-winning Rolston String Quartet, these pieces were premiered in-person in July 2022, and now we’re thrilled to be able to share them with the world! Check out the video above and watch and listen through our playlist of the seven sound.colLAB pieces that these amazing artists created!
