One of the initiatives that Peter Oundjian undertook when he was appointed music director of the Toronto Symphony, back in the dark days of 2004, was a project called New Creations. It began as a three-concert mini-festival of contemporary works and has retained this format for 14 years. Through those years, New Creations has displayed a wide range of programming (often thanks to guest curators) and has showcased the TSO as a band that’s an enthusiastic “quick study” where new music is concerned. As well, New Creations has often attracted sizeable audiences, including many young people.
