General Admission seating. Ages 19+.


Witness the emergence of 3 of Vancouver’s up-and-coming classical, new, and genre-bending musicians as they step into the spotlight: clarinetist Liam Hockley, pianist Nicole Linaksita, and composer and sound-artist Nancy Tam.

Throughout the 2017/18 Season – and culminating in this concert – Music on Main will serve as incubator, launching pad, and showcase for these talented musicians.

From the avant-garde sounds of visionary composer Karlheinz Stockhausen played by Liam Hockley, to the classical beauty of Nikolai Kapustin performed by Nicole Linaksita, to an immersive original piece created by Emerge artist Nancy Tam – this line up has something for everyone.


This concert is generously supported, in part, by Grossman Stanley LLP.
