Performer’s Kitchen Intensive 2016

Following our successful Performer’s Kitchen concerts and Concordia Creative Music Institute program, Concordia University and Quatuor Bozzini have come together to create a new intensive course for performers: Performer’s Kitchen Intensive. Available for university credit or for non-credit, this multi-faceted course is for performers who want to develop the creative and production skills necessary to be a successful contemporary musician.

Course description

A study, through performance, of ensemble and solo works of recent composition or based on improvisatory and collaborative practices. Students will also learn basic entrepreneurship and marketing, and be introduced to funding programs, concert production, and legal issues for artists. Participation in public performances is required. Students will be responsible for the promotion and organization of the concert performances. Students will have the opportunity to work with visual artists in the production of graphic scores, video, or interactive elements in their performances.

Each participant or ensemble should prepare one or more pieces they would like to study. Other pieces will be assigned or created during the course. All participants will create and produce their final concert, which will be assessed by peers and faculty in a discussion and report on the last day of the course.

The fee is $1500 CAD for non-credit or the applicable student tuition fees (in-province, out-of-province, international) for a 3-credit course.

For the last few weeks, Quatuor Bozzini has been leading a contemporary music performance based intensive workshop at Concordia University. The name of the course, ’Performers Kitchen Intensive’, inspired the name of our ensemble — Ensemble Kouziva -, which comes from the Greek word for kitchen. A journey of young artists / chefs inspired by new tools and experimental recipes. Works from the contemporary, experimental, improvised and modern repertoire will be presented to you.
