Improviser-in-Residence 2015-16 Douglas R. Ewart, Feedback and Reflections
Douglas R. Ewart (reeds), the former chair of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) was the 2015-2016 Improviser-In-Residence in Guelph and Waterloo. Ewart’s residency included instrument building workshops, musical improvisations with local artists, a performance at the 2015 Guelph Jazz Festival & Colloquium and culminated in his orchestrated, massive community improvisation Crepuscule 2016, in Guelph’s Arboretum. The Improviser-in-Residence program was a collaborative partnership between IICSI, the Laurier Centre for Music in the Community, and Musagetes.
The Improviser-in-Residence 2015-16 Douglas R. Ewart, Feedback and Reflections report is an amalgamation of the feedback gleaned from the Crepuscule participant surveys and the post-event, Crepuscule Team focus-group evaluation.
