    WAM Jan 26-27 Andrew Staniland & Jason Caslor

    The New Found Music Festival originated ten years ago with a focus on contemporary music. Clark Ross, a composition professor at Memorial University's School of Music, founded the Festival to encourage both the creation and performance of new works. Clark has stepped down from directorship of the festival. Andrew Staniland and Jason Caslor, two profs you've heard from here on Weekend AM previously, now co-chair the event. They decided to celebrate the tin anniversary with a nod to the works of Clark Ross. And they also invited one very special guest to the event. I spoke with Andrew and Jason this week and began by asking Andrew to tell me a little about the tenth version of the New Found Music Festival.
