Chamber Werx is an event which looks to expand the way we hear, see, and interact with art song, chamber music and opera. This multi-disciplined event will engage audience members in new ways through an assortment of music from the 20th and 21st century. 

Building on the commitment of staged chamber music, Opera in the 21st Century goes even further breaking down the traditional concert format.  We will be enhancing standard chamber music and artsong through stage direction, lighting, costuming and electronic soundscape.

The event will feature Banff Centre Opera in the 21st Century singers and musicians.
