The Sounds of Silence Initiative (SOSI) aims to increase diverse representation in Canadian Art Music. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of what music can do and using musical language as a platform on which discourse can occur.
Through independent projects and commissions that emphasizes the inclusion of individuals from underrepresented and repressed communities, we hope to increase the accessibility of classical music.
Historically, music has always been a vehicle for communication.
It has brought communities together.
It is a web that connects us all.
It has allowed us to celebrate our diversity and unique identities through collaboration without assimilation.
This is what SOSI hopes to do. We aim to promote diverse collaboration through music.
