Guelph Youth Jazz Ensemble with Marianne Trudel (ON/QC)
Local musician and music educator Brent Rowan has long led the Guelph Youth Jazz Ensemble, an incubator for young musicians interested in the history of jazz and the development of their skills and creativity. This year the Ensemble is working with Montreal pianist and composer Marianne Trudel, featured regularly at the Guelph Jazz Festival over the years with her own projects and collaborations, and this year’s Artist-in-Residence through the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation.
