Cellist Leanne Zacharias is an interdisciplinary artist and educator whose dynamic practice features new music, site-specific performance and collaboration with artists of all stripes. She curates Music for Spaces, reimagining public and natural space with sound, and is on faculty at the Brandon University School of Music.
As a cellist and performing artist, much of my creative and performance practice is site-specific, exploring intersections between place and sound. I also seek to bring audiences closer to an environment through performance. In residency at the CNSC, I intend to create an installment of my ongoing performance project Music for Spaces unique to the place – created for and influenced by the community and region. The residency would culminate with a live performance or series of performances presented for the community at the CNSC as well as the wider Churchill community.
