Each season suddenlyLISTEN initiates special projects that fall outside our regular concerts, but still celebrate suddenlyLISTEN’s mandate: to stretch the boundaries of music and music creation; and to encourage both musicians and non-musicians to listen to, explore, and participate in the making of new and experimental music.

Special projects in 2017/18 will include participation in Halifax’s Nocturne, along with our friends at Mocean Dance. We will also continue our popular series of poetry/music Salons at Lexicon Books in Lunenburg. We’re pretty sure a few other special events will pop up too, so keep your eyes and ears peeled!

On Saturday, October 14, from 6pm to 12am suddenlyLISTEN and Mocean Dance will present an epic evening of improvisation! Halifax’s best free musicians and dancers will team up to create in the moment at 1313 Hollis Street. Wander in and wander out, we’ll be there in the moment!

suddenlyLISTEN and Lexicon Books of Lunenburg NS  suddenlyLISTEN are co-presenting a series of interactions between poets and musicians. We call them the Lexicon Salons! For these events the two artists find ways to pair their words and music, illuminating both. The evenings are intimate and fun with lively discussions following.

There are three Salons this season with dates and artists TBA:

All Salons are free admission, and begin at 7pm.
