Leanne Zacharias


 Leanne Zacharias is a cellist and performance curator. She collaborates across disciplines with musicians and artists of all stripes and teaches at the Brandon University School of Music.

Leanne will be presenting a contemporary music performance titled Music for Spaces. Installments renegotiate traditional venues and explore the turning of everyday space into performance space: hallways, stairwells, clubs, museums, fossil collections, kitchens, the outdoors, public space, private space and religious space. Collaborations have incorporated cello ensemble, laptops, chimes, clapping, improv, carillon, voices, electronics, kalimba, rivers, canoes, friends, strangers and many surprises.
