Contact Contemporary Music contributes to Canada's unique cultural identity and diversity through music.
About Our Charity
Praised by the Globe and Mail for its "thought-provoking" and "highly entertaining" programming, and by the New York Times for "methodical and mesmerizing" performances, Contact has firmly established itself as one of Canada's leading interpreters of the music of our time. Under the direction of percussionist and founder Jerry Pergolesi, Contact has performed at some of the world's most prestigious new music festivals, including the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (UK), Open Ears Festival of Sound (Kitchener), and the Bang On A Can Marathon (New York).
In addition to concert productions, Contact Contemporary Music presents INTERsection, a twelve-hour music marathon at Yonge-Dundas Square and Music From Scratch, its annual summer workshop for youth.
