Aaron Schwebel is the force behind Echo Chamber, the creator of this immersive experience that seamlessly merges chamber music and contemporary dance. I’ve known Aaron since we were both students at McGill in Jonathan Crow’s studio. He’s a brilliant musician, wonderful violinist, and just such a creative and community-minded individual. I couldn’t be more thrilled to share this unique experience with Chamberfest audiences!
