Over the past three seasons, as the percussionist-in-residence for Caution Tape Sound Collective, Evan has used these sonic interests to expand the percussive repertoire with new pieces written for him as soloist and as a member of unconventional chamber ensembles.
Evan holds degrees from McGill University (M.Mus) and Memorial University (B.Mus) and has completed a residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. He has studied with Aiyun Huang, Rob Power and Fabrice Marandola. Evan been a finalist in the National Music Festival and semi-finalist in the OSM Standard Life Competition as well as the winner of the St. John’s Kiwanis Rose Bowl.
