In partnership with the Western Front, the NOW Society offers workshops every fall to musicians of all ability levels. For eight weeks, artists from Vancouver and from around the world bring their unique perspectives to spontaneous music creation and introduce varied techniques to approaching music improvisation. The series culminates in a performance at the Front (November 21 at 8pm). To register for the workshop series (10 weeks), please state your name, instrument and preferred workshop time in an email to now@nowsociety.org. Each time slot is limited to 15 participants.

To participate in NOW workshops, please become a NOW member (NOW members receive $5 off all NOW concerts!). 

All workshops are open to observers. Please email the address above if you would like to observe.
