About The Wanted Composers Tour:

Five composers of the Collective have committed devious music-related crimes such as creating radical extremes, composing for household objects, or making music that is nearly impossible to perform. On the run from the Western Concert Music Police, these perpetrators are expected to repeat the offences in various locations throughout the Cariboo.
