This event is also featured as part of:

Walter Boudreau takes to the podium with the choir of the Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montréal (SMAM): an occasion that is not to be missed! As part of a scintillating concert given by the Société de Musique Contemporaine du Québec (SMCQ) that will bring together winds, percussion, organ, choir, and a narrator, the celebrated, red-shod conductor will set aside his own group for the time it takes to perform two works — to bring Claude Vivier alive with a whole choir of voices. A celestial experience at the centre of one fiery musical event!

Presentation as part of Montréal/New Music’s “Série Hommage.”

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.
