This three-week program brings together emerging and early career artists from around the world to work and study with Co-Artistic Directors Vijay Iyer and Tyshawn Sorey, as well as internationally acclaimed guest mentors.
The goal is to learn, converse, build, experiment, refine, and transform — to reimagine the state of the art. This program is one of the most intensive that Banff Centre offers and continues our 40-year history of incredible jazz exploration.
What does the program offer?
The Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music is designed to help emerging and early career musicians become performers/composers of consequence in the world, with an emphasis on community and collaboration. Scholarship is available.
Participants will experience one-on-one mentorship, ensemble sessions, and faculty-led presentations and workshops. Participants also have an opportunity to present various public and in-house performances. Studio spaces and music huts are available during the three-week residency.
There is a major recording component to the residency and two weeks of sessions spent in our world class studio with renowned faculty engineers and producers.
Who should apply?
This residency is open to musicians worldwide. The successful applicants will be post-secondary students, or emerging or early career artists, already at an advanced level of accomplishment and with a well-documented record of musical exploration.
Artists from historically underrepresented groups are especially welcomed.
Application Deadline: January 15, 2020
