Coproduction MNM / NEM in collaboration with Sixtrum

Music… in motions! From Gougeon’s furious percussion [NEM & Sixtrum] to Vivier’s exoticism [Sixtrum], this breathtaking concert also gives a nod to the 50 years of avant-garde music in Québec with Kagel and Xenakis. In this case, from work to work, the music is definitely “moving”, drawing us into its frantic rhythms or its ethereal universe. Through this acrobatic journey, Lorraine Vaillancourt brilliantly guides the musicians of the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, joined by the virtuoso percussionists of the Sixtrum ensemble.


Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
