The Performer-Composer Residency at the Westben Centre for Connection & Creativity is an intergenerational and international gathering of creative risk-takers whose practice involves some combination of performance and composition. It is an intensive, week-long collaborative environment, with peer-led workshops culminating in a final performance – deeply woven into the beautiful rolling hills of Canada’s Northumberland County. This is not a typical summer music program; it is not based on teacher-student divisions, tuition or competition. Designed for leading professional, dedicated emerging musicians from Canada and beyond, it encourages perspectival exchanges within a plurality of approaches to music-making, while sharing a commitment to building communities through music.
