Musical Improvisation at Land’s End / Coin-du-Banc en folie
August 3-10 2019, Coin-du-Banc, Québec
Camp Faculty: Marianne Trudel
Guest artists: Jesse Stewart, Ajay Heble, Daniel Fischlin, Kathy Kennedy, and Robin Servant.
The Gaspé coast has been listed by National Geographic as one of the top 20 tourist destinations in the entire world. Nestled in the most easterly tip of the region appropriately known as the Land’s End, and minutes away from the famous Rocher Percé, the coastal village of Coin-du-Banc offers an inspirational and spectacular natural setting for a summer camp devoted to musical improvisation. We contend that where the land ends, imagination begins.
Presented by the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation (IICSI), this summer camp seeks to develop innovative strategies to put aspiring musicians in direct and meaningful contact with professional improvisers. Musical Improvisation at Land’s End (MILE) is a unique summer camp that will engage musicians and non-musicians alike in hands-on workshops led by world-class improvising artists.
