The festival's 2017 Young Artists champion new music, singing sets of songs composed in the last fifteen years. Designed by Katelyn Mattson-Levy, Memories never finish is a program exploring varying recollections: visceral, foggy, haunting, comforting, complex. Accompanying the Young Artists is the endlessly talented Victoria native Matthew Piatt.
