John Reid (AB and the Northern Territories) (2010-14)

“I was moved to run based on wonderful experiences at the 2010 CNMN FORUM in Halifax. I am impressed with the organization’s growth and offer my assistance; maybe the conference could even come to Calgary! My background includes: performing (sax/flute), presenting, teaching, writing, experience at every level of non-profit music boards, and twenty-one years at the CMC.”

I am the full-time Prairie Regional Director of the Canadian Music Centre. Successful projects include: establishing Western Canadian Music Award for Outstanding Classical Composition, founding of classical music showcase at the JUNO Awards, founding of Emerging Composer Award (with WSO/NMF), New Music in New Places, founding of Prairie Sounds imprint on Centrediscs, 21-year Canadian music radio program.
