Gilles Tremblay visits the composers’ salon where, year after year, the Bozzini quartet assembles a repertoire that is 100% Canadian. Other guests include clarinetist/improvisor/composer François Houle, pianist Pamela Reimer, percussionist Rick Sacks, and composers Linda C Smith, Michael Oesterle and Cléo Palacio-Quintin. Guests will have the pleasure of hearing their host perform Tremblay’s only string quartet, Croissant.

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.
