Musiques du feu

  • September 27, 2007
    8:00 pm
Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste
309, rue Rachel Est

Works by Boudreau, Gonneville, Lesage, Tremblay, Vivier.

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!
