A hub for artistic inspiration

Music programs at Banff Centre develop your talent alongside world class faculty, while providing time and space to push boundaries with support to realize your potential and hone your skills.

Focus on your artistic development, have the opportunity to perform and record, and receive artistic inspiration and career advice.

An update on our offerings

With the evolving and ever-changing realities of Covid continuing to impact Banff Centre, some of our programs are on temporary pause as we rebuild our capacity to support artists to have fulfilling residency experiences with opportunities to experiment and perform on our stages.

While we recruit for a Director of Music, a position that will allow the Centre to grow the footprint of our music programming, in 2023 we will continue to see Summer Classical Music Programming and Indigenous Arts Music programming. Once we have the new Director onboard we will add more breadth of music programming into the 2024 programming suite. We thank the artist community for your patience and support as we continue to rebuild.

Banff Centre remains dedicated to supporting musicians and composers and we expect that these programs will return as funding and capacity allow.
