Artistic Director
Soundstreams
Canada

Lawrence Cherney’s first professional engagement as an oboist was under the baton of Igor Stravinsky. For over 40 years as artistic director and performer, he has been at the forefront of Canadian music, often referred to as Canada’s “Ambassador of New Music”. Lawrence founded Soundstreams in 1982, which produces an eclectic annual series in Toronto featuring contemporary music and opera. Increasingly Soundstreams is touring productions on the world stage including international collaborations. It hosts an outreach series Salon 21 at the Gardiner Museum, an annual Emerging Composers Workshop, and has developed a state-of-the-art web platform with a digital concert hall and archive, and the innovative SoundMakers program. His paramount role in the commissioning, developing, producing, performing, touring and recording of new music by Canadian and international composers has been widely recognized: the Order of Canada, Muriel Sherrin Award for International Achievement, two Lieutenant Governor’s Awards and the Chalmers National Music Award.
