Musical Improvisation at Land’s End / Coin-du-Banc en folie
August 6, 2016 - August 13, 2016
Presented by the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation (IICSI), this summer camp seeks to develop innovative strategies to put aspiring young musicians in direct and meaningful contact with professional improvisers. Musical Improvisation at Land’s End (MILE) is a unique summer camp that will engage young musicians and non-musicians alike in hands-on workshops led by world-class improvising artists from three different provinces: clarinetist François Houle (British Columbia), vocalist Kathy Kennedy (Québec), and percussionist Jesse Stewart (Ontario).
The workshops will take place in an inclusive and supportive environment, nurturing and developing musical improvisation as a vital model of arts-based community-making. In addition to participating in workshops, lecture-demonstrations, and jam sessions, campers (aged 16 and up) will attend concerts and have opportunities to experience some of the unique tourist attractions that the area has to offer, including whale watching, visits to local artisans’ studios, and tours that highlight the region’s breathtaking beauty. Camp participants will be lodged in a newly-renovated guest house, Auberge La Voisine du Coin, located directly on the stunningly beautiful Coin-du-Banc beach.
The camp will run from August 6-13, 2016, in Coin-du-Banc, Québec.
