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.
