“IF Encore” Installation Launch
October 16, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
On Saturday, October 16th, IICSI is thrilled to be hosting live music in the Arboretum to celebrate the launch of a new installation project!
PLEASE NOTE: This event is still happening at 1pm, but due to the rain, we have moved to the Gazebo beside the Arboretum Centre! Bring an umbrella & join us at 1pm. Directions: arboretum.uoguelph.ca/thingstosee/pr
Join us at 1 pm on the Memorial Forest boardwalk for a pop-up, physically distanced, improvised musical performance by Richard Burrows and Daniel Morphy of TorQ Percussion Quartet, one of the most innovative and prolific percussion groups in Canada. This performance marks the launch of IF: Encore, a series of signposts installed throughout the Arboretum featuring QR codes, which you can scan to relive incredible improvisational performances filmed in those locations and originally shown at previous iterations of the IF Improvisation Festival. From the Wild Goose Woods Trail to the Arboretum Centre, you can venture through the Arboretum at your own pace to track down performances by Matt Brubeck & Ben Grossman, François Houle, Standpartners, Richard Burrows, and Reza Yazdanpanah.
