Boundless thanks to all who participated in 2023’s Casse-Tete: A Festival of Experimental Music. We experienced four wonderful, surprising, delightful concerts together that could not have happened without you all!

There are too many people to thank, but as briefly as possible, let me thank the City of Surrey, the City of White Rock, the Canadian Music Centre BC, and the White Rock BIA, all our festival artists, volunteers, supporters, and patrons, along with a very special thanks to Erin Arding Stewart. Thank you.

If you enjoyed the music this year, by all means, drop us a note!
