ContaQt is a contemporary music ensemble and concert producing organization that highlights collaborations with other media, established and emerging composers, performances in alternative spaces, and outreach to underserved communities that stress diversity, collaboration and accessibility.

ContaQt has firmly established itself as one of Canada’s leading interpreters of the music of our time. Under the direction of percussionist and founder Jerry Pergolesi, Contact has performed at new music festivals including the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (UK), Open Ears Festival of Sound (Kitchener), and the Bang On A Can Marathon (New York).

In addition to concert productions, ContaQt presents INTERsection, a twelve-hour music marathon at Yonge-Dundas Square and Music From Scratch, its annual summer workshop for youth.
