Performer (clarinet)

Montréal-based clarinetist Louise Campbell is a classical and contemporary musician whose artistic curiosity has led her to explore styles ranging from swing and klezmer to free improvisation. Louise is co-founder and clarinetist of In Extensio, with whom she commissions works by young composers, and the Maenad Ensemble, with whom she expands the audience for music by playing community outreach and educational concerts. Having completed a Master’s in Performance (jazz minor) at Indiana University (2003), Louise has been heard in concert with the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec, Innovations en concert, Codes d’accès and Land’s End Chamber Ensemble, among others. Louise’s mentors include musicians James Campbell, David Baker, movement specialist Valerie Dean and the One Yellow Rabbit Theatre Company.
