Echo Village returns to the Memorial University Botanical Garden in time for the Fall Solstice, bringing together a cornucopia of soundscape artists, folk singers, actors, and aerial dancers for an immersive, sunset wander-about. Co-presented by Sound Symposium and the Memorial University Botanical Garden, this third installment of Echo Village – Arcadia – is inspired by folk tales, mythological journeys, and the elusive search for utopia. Performers roam freely, animating the garden with layers of sound and movement which blend reality with dream, while audiences are self-guided, free to explore the village, forest, pond, and join in the action and soundscape at will.

Saturday, September 16th
5:30pm to sunset
MUN Botanical Garden

Sound Symposium thanks
our funders & partners


Sound Symposium is powered by volunteers. Whether you’re looking to meet new people or spend time immersed in experimental music, your donated time is the secret sauce that makes Sound Symposium so special. We’ll thank you with some perks, too.

We need volunteers to work at the merchandise table, and to pull front-of-house shifts at concerts taking place at our various venues, including MUNThe Rooms, and Cape Spear. We need friendly faces to meet and greet attendees at workshops. If you’re good with computers, sound systems and machines of all sorts, we also need volunteers to assist the technical team.

We will help you find the volunteer position that’s right for your skills and your schedule.
