    Music and Dance, Echo Chamber Toronto

    Music and Dance, Echo Chamber Toronto

    In today's episode we'll be exploring how music and dance have inspired one prominent Toronto musician to form Echo Chamber Toronto, an ensemble which combines chamber music with contemporary dance.

    Stephen Bonfield, from Ludwig Van Toronto, writes: "Toronto’s hottest chamber performance series going these days"

    Canadian Violinist Aaron Schwebel leads Echo Chamber Toronto. Aaron writes:

    "My objective as Artistic Director is to create performances that offer a new lens through which both music and dance can be experienced. By merging these two art forms in an intimate setting, Echo Chamber performances deliver the unique opportunity to see and hear music and dance together as one integrated expression."
