The SMCQ Takes Off For Paris

News Item

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.
