  Music of Canada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The native peoples of Canada are of a number of diverse ethnic groups, each of which have their own musical traditions.
Music was dance-oriented and requested luck in hunting, gambling, or weather, and only rarely, if ever, expressing traditional purposes like love or specialized forms like work songs and lullabies.
Classical music in Canada is performed by a variety of orchestras, such as the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, and many smaller orchestras and groups; such as the Canadian Brass.

 Electroacoustic Music in Canada: 1950-1984   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-06)
Although our concern is Canada's part in all of this, we had better take a brief look at tie global state of the art just before Canada got her feet wet.
Despite the breadth and variety of activity in electroacoustic music in Canada, little important technical innovation surfaced during the 1965-1975 heyday of the conduct courses of instruction of some sort in electroacoustic music composition and most can claim to have had works produced in them which have been per�formed and broadcast nationally and internationally.
Canada's electroacoustic music composers - in particular, Buxton, Keane, Truax, and more recently Jean Piché - are well represented in broadcasts and concert series around the world and they figure prominently in such important international festivals as those in Bourges, Brussels, Tokyo, Paris, and the Warsaw Autumn and Gaudeamus Festivals.

 Introduction - Sheet Music from Canada's Past - Library and Archives Canada
Its musical content is usually of a popular nature as opposed to the more timeless "serious" music of well-known and respected composers.
In the past, because of its size and fragility, and the modest artistic aspirations of many of its composers, sheet music was often considered ephemera by music libraries and seldom formed a part of their permanent collections.
When Helmut Kallmann became the founding Chief of the Music Division at the National Library of Canada in 1970, his work and that of the CMLA (now the Canadian Association of Music Libraries, CAML) came with him.

 Folk Music in Canada Today
Music depending upon an elaborate interplay of instrumental voices; music that is designed to be listened to, not sung or danced to; slow and stately dance music; processional or martial music — these constitute court music, not folk music.
Such music was, and is, written for the entertainment of the leisured, moneyed classes by professional musicians, not by ordinary people for their own enjoyment.
And this, of course, serves not only to confirm audiences in their mistaken view of folk music, but also to render ineffective one of the best available means of exposing Canadians to the pleasures and riches of our musical traditions.
