A Message From The Artistic Director

June 2, 2019

GMSM – 2019 Season

Our 2019 summer season we are calling ‘From the Edge’ in honour of our spectacular surroundings here on the western edge of Newfoundland and the eastern edge of the nation. As much as it captures our geographical circumstances, the name grasps our shared artistic ambitions perfectly. 2019 brings us back to the heart of our ambition, working at the edge of our creative imagination, the edge of our imaginative horizon, where we can just glimpse that distant expressive possibility in ourselves. This is the invitation we have tried to extend to all the artists in 2019. Go for it. Don’t do the thing you know, don’t give us more of the same. Or in the vernacular of the place, don’t worry about playing something we all knows…Find that inkling of possibility in yourself and your surroundings and go, for as we’ve come to know and treasure here at Gros Morne Summer Music, one of the most adventurous, open, honest, and dedicated audiences anywhere in the world will be right behind you.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being that audience, sixteen years and counting.

David Maggs
