July 10 to 14
Free workshop for youth – in partnership with the Canadian Music Centre, Music From Scratch is a free week-long music creation workshop for youth between the ages of 18 and 25. Facilitated by artistic director Jerry Pergolesi and guest composer/sound creator Tina Pearson, and guided by the Contact ensemble, participants engage in creative listening, writing, vocal performance, movement, and graphic and improvisation exercises, leading to the performance of a series of collaborative sound works. Music From Scratch helps participants develop new skills and the confidence to take risks both as listeners and creators. No experience necessary! Just a willingness to learn and explore your own inner creativity.
