About Hope

A sunlit white woman laughs, holding a tuba, her other hand in the pocket of her red, flower-print jumpsuit. She has short, dark brown hair and blue glasses. She stands in front of a tree with purple flowers.

Composer-tubist Hope Salmonson is queering her music through a cross-genre voice and an emphasis on establishing musical community. From unceded Mi'kmaq territory (Halifax), she is spreading her wings on Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh lands (Vancouver). To Hope, people always come before music. Her compositions serve and honour her communities.
