Western 360 Summer Music Festival

August 20 - 24, 2018

Thank you to all 2018 participants!

Western 360 Summer Music Festival was a chamber music festival open to high school and college undergraduate string players (violin, viola, cello, and piano), designed to look at music from every angle. With an emphasis on chamber music, new music, First Nations’ influences, and Canadian music from many cultures, students learned about new trends in the music world in a wholly non-competitive environment. They received chamber music coaching from internationally-renowned faculty and had the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of health-and-wellness activities, including Tai Chi, Alexander Technique, yoga, all specifically curated for the well-rounded musician. Workshops were offered in topics ranging from Haydn to website design. Three concerts anchored the festival, featuring Ensemble Made in Canada, Geoff Nuttall, Western University faculty members and festival student participants.
