Last day for streamed concert “Béatrice Picard: une célébration symphonique”

A concert that celebrates Laval-born actress Béatrice Picard. On the program, works by Goulet, Mozart and Chopin.

Maxime Goulet’s catalogue includes numerous works for orchestra, video game soundtracks, chamber music and two operas. To this we can now add a very first symphonie, the Symphonie de la tempête du verglas, inspired by the great winter storm of 1998 that hit the province of Quebec. We’ll hear the 2nd movement, « Chaleur », which portrays mutual help and family gatherings under the same roof because some had no electricity at their own house. For more details, click here.

Following, we celebrate Astor Piazzolla’s 100th anniversary with his famous version of The Four Seasons featuring our concertmaster Marc Djokic as the featured soloist.
