With an emphasis on new music, First Nations influences and Canadian music, learn about new trends in a wholly non-competitive environment. Includes chamber music coaching and health-and-wellness activities specifically curated for the well-rounded musician. Workshops range from Haydn to website design. Opening night jam party features Canadian fiddler Shane Cook. Three concerts anchor the festival featuring Ensemble Made in Canada, Geoff Nuttall, Western University faculty members and festival participants. Preference given to artistically-inclined applicants looking to be global citizens who are curious about how to break out from traditions.
