The Board of Directors of NUMUS Concerts is very pleased to announce Guy Few, as our new Artistic Director.  Founded in 1985 by composer Peter Hatch, NUMUS is one of Canada’s foremost new music organizations, renowned for its electrifying contemporary programming and high standards of artistry. 

Following consultation with staff and numerous NUMUS stakeholders, the board searched for someone who could both support and advance programming and further deepen relationships with artists and the community.  Guy was a unanimous decision.  His local, national and international experience, commitment to the highest level of artistry, as well as supporting diverse programming and artists is well known.  As a performer, Guy’s instrumental versatility and fearless interpretations have been noted by the international press – “virtuoso,” “flawless” and “wild and engaging.”  His awards include a JUNO nomination, CAPACOA Touring Artist of the Year and the Sylvia Gelber Foundation Award through the Canada Council for the Arts.  Guy is also a trumpet instructor and collaborative pianist at Wilfrid Laurier University.  Guy started in his role with NUMUS on December 1st.  Watch for his first programmed season in 2024/2025.  

The board wishes to thank outgoing Artistic Director, Kathryn Ladano for her leadership, creativity and vision during the last 10 years.  We wish her the very best in her personal and professional pursuits.
