Improviser-in-Residence

The Improviser-in-Residence program is a collaborative partnership with Musagetes, bringing improvising musicians into meaningful contact with the local community. The inaugural Improviser-in-Residence, Jane Bunnett, in 2011, offered innovative workshops for a variety of organizations including the Guelph Youth Jazz Ensemble, the Contemporary Music Ensemble, Homewood Health Centre, KidsAbility Centre for Child Development, Guelph-area high schools, Give Yourself Credit, and St. Joseph's Health Centre. In 2012, ICASP welcomed our second Improviser-in-Residence, New York musician, sound artist, and composer Miya Masaoka. Our third Improvisers-in-Residence were welcomed for a second phase of the program in 2012, Scott Thomson and Susanna Hood.
