The SMCQ is leaving the country! And in the company of 31 musicians, including the Bozzini string quartet and Sixtrum’s six percussionists. It’s all part of Radio-France’s Présences festival — a special event entitled “Week-End Québec” that will see the SMCQ perform seven concerts in Paris, Montpellier, and Lyon. With a programme that includes both twentieth-century “Classics” (Cage, Ligeti and Xenakis) as well as “Homegrown” talent (Walter Boudreau, Paul Frehner and Claude Vivier), this tour will provide a unique occasion to acquaint and “re-acquaint” audiences abroad with our composers and performers’ excellence.

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.
