NBG is the resident ensemble of the Acadia New Music Society. The NBG Ensemble is the brainchild of conductor Mark Hopkins and composer Derek Charke. Along with some of the finest performers in the Maritimes, (including members of Symphony Nova Scotia and teaching Faculty from two Maritime universities), this ensemble seeks to perform the great chamber music of our time to the highest professional standard. The NBG Ensemble takes particular joy in tackling challenging new works by living composers, striving to entertain and enlighten audiences looking for a 21st Century musical experience. Over the last five years NBG has premiered new works by Jérôme Blais, Anthony Genge, Bob Bauer, and Derek Charke, some of Nova Scotia’s finest artist-composers. In addition, NBG brought the first performances of great new works to Maritime audiences of music by a diverse range of composers like Allan Gordon Bell, Vincent Ho, John Harbison, and John Luther Adams. NBG is the resident chamber ensemble of Shattering the Silence, Nova Scotia’s innovative new music Festival.
