Chloé Chabanole, violoniste originaire de Regina, possède une carrière étoffée qui reflète son expérience musicale diversifiée.
Outre son poste de violon solo à l’Orchestre de l’Agora, sous la direction du chef Nicolas Ellis, elle est régulièrement invitée à se joindre aux principales formations québécoises, notamment l’Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, l’Orchestre Métropolitain, et I Musici de Montréal. Chambriste expérimentée, elle est membre des groupes collectif9 et Warhol Dervish.
Chloé a étudié auprès de Johannes Leertouwer au Conservatoire d’Amsterdam, de Laurence Kayaleh à l’Université de Montréal, et de Marianne Dugal au Conservatoire de musique de Montréal. Son parcours l’a amenée à prendre part à de nombreux festivals d’orchestre et de musique de chambre internationaux tels que le Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, le Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra, le St. Lawrence String Quartet Seminar, Toronto Summer Music Festival, Colorado College Summer Music Festival, et l’Accademia Mahler à Bolzano.
Elle est désormais une habituée du Rendez-vous musical de Laterrière, d’Ottawa Chamberfest, du Festival de Lanaudière, de POP Montréal, et de Music at Port Milford, où elle enseigne la musique de chambre. Elle figure sur plusieurs albums nommés aux prix Juno, et participera à l’enregistrement de trois quatuors de Tim Brady en 2024.

The Star Poems: A Cree Sky Narrative

Honey by Cosmic Honey!
These three teapots were made in Nelson, BC, and were inspired by traditional Japanese side-handle teapots. The plants decorating each teapot are yarrow, dandelion leaves, and horsetail which are all native to BC’s west coast. Although now they are often considered weeds, they have medicinal properties and historically were used to make tea.
All three teapots were fired in a soda kiln. They were loaded into the kiln with no glaze on the outside. During the firing, a mixture of soda ash and soda bicarbonate was introduced to the kiln at such a high temperature that the materials vaporized and were carried through the kiln by the flame. As the vaporized materials came in contact with the pots, it fluxed with the materials in the clay to create a glazed finish. This method of firing is unpredictable and creates unique and dynamic pieces that tell a story of the firing process.
Ayal Heinrichs is a ceramic artist currently working towards a BFA in Ceramics at the University of Regina. She was raised by creative parents who instilled in her a deep appreciation of art and handmade objects and encouraged her creative pursuits. Having grown up on the rainy west coast of BC, her work, both functional and conceptual, is heavily influenced by the landscapes that surrounded her as a child. Ayal is interested in the role functional pottery has played throughout history and its potential to provoke thought and bring beauty into mundane daily rhythms. Her sculptural work explores themes of belonging, place, and personal growth. She fell in love with clay after taking a throwing class at a community studio in 2018 and studied the craft further at Kootenay School of the Arts where she received a Certificate in Ceramics (2021). Before she moved to Saskatchewan to complete her BFA, Ayal apprenticed with several ceramic artists in BC, gaining practical experience and mentorship. In 2022, Ayal was invited to be a guest artist at the Fired Up! group show “Smoke and Fire” on Vancouver Island. While studying full-time, she also teaches at a local ceramics studio and works as the student technician in the U of R’s ceramics department.
