Stacey Brown (QC) (Treasurer, 2014–16; Vice-President, 2012–14)

“With roots in BC, a home in Que­bec and fam­i­ly in New­found­land, I have been lucky to vis­it Cana­da from coast to coast and expe­ri­ence many dif­fer­ent cul­tur­al activ­i­ties along the way. A mem­ber of the CNMN since 2009, I was Vice-Pres­i­dent of the Board of Direc­tors from 2012–2014 and am now Trea­sur­er. I have played an active role in the past two nation­al FORUMS, first as a Lan­guage Facil­i­ta­tor and Bil­let­ing Coor­di­na­tor in Van­cou­ver 2012, and most recent­ly as Coor­di­na­tor of Lan­guage Ser­vices in Cal­gary 2014. I am more con­vinced than ever of the val­ue of this kind of orga­ni­za­tion on the Cana­di­an artis­tic land­scape. The dia­logue that is made pos­si­ble by the bring­ing togeth­er of peo­ple with shared inter­ests from all across the coun­try is vital to the sur­vival and suc­cess of our com­mon goals, as well as to our indi­vid­ual or more region­al needs and wish­es. I feel very strong­ly that nation­al net­works are built one rela­tion­ship at a time, and I am hon­oured to con­tribute to the con­tin­ued growth of the CNMN through renewed par­tic­i­pa­tion on the board. I bring with me strong com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills in both offi­cial lan­guages, a demon­strat­ed will­ing­ness to take an active role in board activ­i­ties and ini­tia­tives, as well as a per­son­al invest­ment in see­ing our mem­ber­ship and out­reach expand to include as diverse a group as pos­si­ble of artists and sup­port­ers of new music.

An Asso­ciate Com­pos­er of the Cana­di­an Music Cen­tre, a mem­ber of the Cana­di­an League of Com­posers and Trea­sur­er of the Cana­di­an New Music Net­work (2014–2016), Stacey Brown holds com­po­si­tion degrees from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Vic­to­ria (BMUS) and the Uni­ver­sité de Mon­tréal (MMUS, DMUS). Her musi­cal out­put is diverse, rang­ing from solo, vocal, cham­ber, mixed and orches­tral works, to music for dance, the­atre and film, to opera. Her cre­ative projects demon­strate a marked inter­est in inter­dis­ci­pli­nary and mul­ti­me­dia col­lab­o­ra­tions and her music is per­formed through­out Cana­da. In addi­tion to teach­ing cours­es at the Uni­ver­sité du Québec à Mon­tréal and the École de musique Vincent‑d’Indy, Stacey Brown is the author of analy­sis arti­cles pub­lished in the jour­nal L’Éducation musi­cale (France). She is cur­rent­ly writ­ing a new song cycle for counter-tenor and orches­tra (with texts by Bertrand Laver­dure) to be pre­miered in 2015 by Daniel Cabena and the Orchestre de la fran­coph­o­nieunder the direc­tion of Jean-Philippe Tremblay.
