We’re delighted to announce that Sounds New was awarded Destination Canterbury 2012 at last night’s Canterbury Culture Awards. This award, sponsored by ABode, is given to the arts organisation that brings the greatest national and international cultural credit to the city;
For an organisation, group or individual who has done most in the last twelve months to raise the profile of the District’s cultural offering regionally, nationally and internationally.
We’re extremely proud; the award is a terrific acknowledgement of the Festival’s efforts in bringing major cultural figures to Canterbury, significant composers, performers and ensembles from the world of international contemporary music and giving people in the region the opportunity to experience music performed by many of the world’s leading national and international players, as well as all the related arts and educational projects that combine in Sounds New. The entire team behind the delivery of this year’s Festival, including its Artistic Director, Paul Max Edlin, and Festival Manager, Michelle Castelletti, is thoroughly delighted.
Congratulations to all the winners at last night’s award ceremony, which recognised the region as a vibrant cultural area with a great deal of individuals, organisations and events contributing to make Kent a dynamic area, rich in artistic and creative initiatives.
