About CMC BC

Through our Creative Hub in Vancouver, we offer an extensive public-lending library of Canadian music; an exclusive music print and bind service; a thought-through range of composition education and appreciation programs; an awards program recognizing extraordinary contributions to Canadian music; as well as providing creative services and facilities to leading performing arts organizations, orchestras, choirs, teachers, universities, music schools, ensembles, performing artists and conductors.

We also offer a unique, immersion-experience concert series in the new Murray Adaskin Salon, now in its third sold-out season. The Murray Adaskin Salon Concert Series offers a comprehensive survey of Canadian music seen through the lens of BC-based composers, with each concert featuring an overview of the music of one landmark composer.

Both the Adaskin Salon and our upgraded CREATE Board Room are also available for rehearsals, performances and meetings.
