The Association of Canadian Women composers is "the only professional association of women composers and musicians in Canada. It actively supports music written by Canadian women."  The Association attracts  leading composers within Canada, and extends its performance base to international stages.  The ACWC Chair is Carol Ann Weaver, Professor Emerita of Conrad Grebel/UW.  

"Today, more than ever before, we are interested in the welfare of our planet and all beings who dwell therein!  As musicians, we are particularly interested in the very sounds of our earth.  Tonight’s concert celebrates the earth as splendid, sacred, healing, powerful, and mysteriously magical!  Each piece tonight explores different aspects of natural soundscapes stemming from our planet earth.  Tonight we also are launching the new book, Sound in the Land – Music and the Environment, stemming from the recent 2014 conference, which also celebrated sounds of the earth." – CAWeaver

The concert is generously supported by ACWC and by Conrad Grebel University College, which is providing the venue and facilities for the concert.
