ONSOUND II: Patchwork Quilt banner

The fabric is cut to shape. Each pattern tells a story. The stitching bobs and weaves between sections. We create the patchwork quilt.

ONSOUND II: Patchwork Quilt festival poster

Sound Symposium presents its sound and art festival ONSOUND II: Patchwork Quilt. The second biennial festival features performances from all corners of Newfoundland and Labrador’s artistic scene, from experimental and percussive, to trad and classical. ONSOUND will include screenings and performances of new works for film and sound. We will meander around bustling downtown St. John’s for a soundwalk. And, no Sound Symposium festival would be complete without a Night Music event, our monthly improvisational performance series at The Ship. A true patchwork of experiences!

Performers include Duo Concertante, Pamela Morgan, Aaron Prosper and First Light Community Drummers, The Watershed Ensemble, and many more.

Events will take place at various venues around St. John’s, including the First Light Centre for Performance and Creativity, the Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, The Rooms, The Ship Pub, Bowring Park, and Peter Easton Pub.
