Po Yeh (Prairies) (2016–2022)

I was most impressed with the CNMN nation­al forum, both in Cal­gary (2014) and Ottawa (2016), and great­ly val­ue the impor­tant role CNMN plays in build­ing rela­tion­ships and bring­ing togeth­er edu­ca­tors, com­posers, musi­cians and orga­ni­za­tions in the new music com­mu­ni­ty. I am par­tic­u­lar­ly focused on sup­port­ing CNMN in build­ing a long-term vision and strate­gic direc­tor. I enjoy work­ing togeth­er with staff, board and mem­bers of CNMN build­ing a strong nation­al com­mu­ni­ty and act­ing as an advo­cate for its initiatives.

Po Yeh is Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of Prairie Debut, a tour­ing orga­ni­za­tion that links Cana­di­an clas­si­cal and world music artists to over 80 com­mu­ni­ties that are most­ly rur­al and out­side the main cen­tres in Man­i­to­ba, Saskatchewan, Alber­ta and the Yukon.  Po also has a keen inter­est in sup­port­ing the per­for­mance and cre­ation of con­tem­po­rary new music, through work­ing with Land’s End Ensem­ble, New Works Cal­gary, the Cana­di­an New Music Net­work, Lumi­nous Voic­es and the Cana­di­an Fed­er­a­tion of Music Teach­ers Associations.
