Production Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur

Feet firmly planted in Montreal, ears tuned to the Balkan summits, discover the musical treasures of Southwestern European composers. This journey in concert is not only an occasion to mark the cultural exchange between our two corners of the world, but also a time to discover (or rediscover) Sokolović’s cultural roots. Works by composers either fully or partly Balkan in origin will be accompanied by the music of Maxime McKinley, composer-in-residence for the Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur.

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.
