This summer as part of our inaugural Summer Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation and our fourth annual Musical Improvisation at Mile End/Coin-du-Banc en folie camp (MILE), we are presenting concerts featuring Institute and Camp participants, guest artists and facilitators.
On Sunday August 4th (7:30 PM), MILE camp faculty member Marianne Trudel will perform a solo piano concert at Le Musée culturel de Coin-du-Banc / Corner of the Beach Cultural Museum, 294 route 132 est in Coin-du-Banc. This will be an opportunity to hear one of Canada’s most accomplished pianists in the acoustic splendor of the recently deconsecrated St. Luke’s Anglican Church.
On Thursday August 8th (4:30 PM), students and faculty from the camp will perform in Gaspé under the direction of Marianne Trudel at Festival Musique du Bout du Monde at Scène du FMBM. Admission is free.
On Friday August 9th (4:00 PM), the camp will culminate with a Grand Finale event featuring camp participants in a public concert with Marianne Trudel, where musicians of all ages and levels of experience will showcase and explore new and innovative approaches to creating and performing improvised music. This event will take place at Le Musée culturel de Coin-du-Banc / Corner of the Beach Cultural Museum.
On Sunday August 11th (7:30 PM), Ajay Heble will perform on piano in a concert of improvised music with two friends, fellow musicians, and faculty members at the Summer Institute: Ellen Waterman (flute) and Jesse Stewart (drums and percussion). This event will also take place at Le Musée culturel de Coin-du-Banc / Corner of the Beach Cultural Museum.
Tickets for the August 4th, August 9th and August 11th concerts are $10 and will be available at the door. Seating is limited.
A final public event will take place as part of the Summer Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation. The students and faculty of the Summer Institute will host a Creation and Research Studio to be held on Friday August 16th from 2 to 5pm at the Villa Frederick-James in Percé (27, rue Mont-Joli). Admission is free.
