Grand and eclectic - this concert conducted by Walter Boudreau as part of the Montréal/Nouvelles Musiques festival will take us from the totalitarian world of Louis Andriessen’s De Staat (“The Republic”) - for women’s choir and large ensemble - to the playful world of Nicole Lizée’s This Will Not Be Televised - for seven musicians and DJ. With up to 40 musicians on stage, including the vocal ensemble Viva Voce and New York’s DJ P-Love, this promises to be a raucous evening!

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.
