Alumni success story: Eric Wettstein

We are really proud of the great work our graduates do when they leave Cap U and head out into the wider world to make music.  Even before he graduated, composer/guitarist/singer, Eric Wettstein was busy outside school with his band Criminal Caterpillar.  Since he graduated in 2013, Eric has been working hard to create his own career as a musician and teacher.  He has just been awarded an Early Career Development Grant from the Canada Council.  This award provides substantial funding for Eric to pursue a mentorship opportunity with John Korsrud and the Hard Rubber Orchestra.  Eric will work with John and Hard Rubber to learn the ins and outs of non-profit societies, running a large ensemble, grant writing, and production and will also have the opportunity to study composition with John and write music for the band.  This is truly an amazing award for Eric and one that he has earned through hard work and dedication to his craft.  Congratulations!
