Launch: November 2007
Produced by the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec, as part of the “Tribute to Vivier” series.
In November 2007, 5000 young Quebecers will be introduced to Claude Vivier through a comic strip. Written by cartoonist and composer Sylvie-Anne Ménard (Zviane), the Vivier comic strip is a little jewel bound to stir the imaginary worlds and wide-ranging sensitivities of our young people. Scheduled to be launched during the FAMEQ Conference (Fédération des musiciens éducateurs du Québec), the comic strip will be freely distributed to 1300 music educators, 800 less fortunate Montreal school children, and all of the young people taking part in the grand rally of April 14th, 2008. A unique way for younger generations to get to know a composing legend.
Look for the comic strip in bookstores near the end of November.
