Journées découvertes au Vivier

@ Amphithéâtre du Gesù, 1200 rue Bleury

Journées découvertes au Vivier

Free concert and discussion co-presented with Groupe Le Vivier

Le Vivier opens its doors during the Journées de la culture, offering workshops, concerts and meetings with artists for free. Come join us in listening to works by composers of today connecting with water and nature, such as the acoustic landscapes of Michel Frigon, Terri Hron, or Sound of the Mountain. It’s also an opportunity to enjoy exchanges with the performers and composers, and to discover unusual instruments such as the “trompes sax” of Productions Totem Contemporain played by Quasar Saxophone Quartet, or new ways to play string instruments with Novarumori and composer Cecilia Arditto. Two days to playfully and gently discover new music!
