Grace Scheel
2 pm, 3 pm, and 4 pm



Grace Scheele is a contemporary harpist, composer, and improviser dually based in Kitchener and Toronto. Her music hones minimalistic textures within noise landscapes — creating a sound that is “a pliable, fluid, continuum…that’s as beautiful as it is unconventional” (Canadian Music Centre). Scheele interweaves electronics, structured improvisation, and sampling, reimagining the pedal harp as an electroacoustic instrument.
