Louise Campbell is a Montreal-based musician whose professional hats range from clarinettist to conductor, participatory arts facilitator to cultural mediator. As a composer-performer and improviser, Louise seeks to interrogate and renew the ways in which we make music by creating new works with everyone, regardless of age, ability, level of prior experience, or training. Her specializations include improvisation and music creation with untrained (aka ‘amateur’) musicians, improvised conducting, cross-disciplinary creation, collaborative processes, and public engagement. In addition to being Project Leader for the Canadian New Music Network’s Participatory Creative Music Hub, Louise works extensively as a Teaching Artist with ELAN ArtistsInspire, Culture in Schools and Culture pour tous, and as a cultural mediator with arts organizations such as Innovations en concert, Bradyworks, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, and the Opéra de Montréal.
