EXCLUSIVE EVENT FOR WEEK 7 PARTICIPANTS:

Monday August 8: Workshop and concert with Matthias Maute and Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec

Matthias Maute and Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec will be at the CAMMAC Music Centre to present an afternoon choral workshop as well as a concert in the evening.

Week 7 participants will have the opportunity to work with the EVAQ choir, under the direction of Matthias Maute, on two short pieces from the Week 7 choral repertoire. At 9 p.m., Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec will present a concert during which the pieces rehearsed earlier will be performed with all CAMMAC participants.

ENSEMBLE VOCAL ARTS-QUEBEC

Under the direction of Artistic Director Matthias Maute since 2019, Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec is a professional choir steeped in the grand tradition of choral music in Québec, with the mission to present professional choral music in Québec, Canada and internationally. Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec is a recipient of the Prix Opus for Musical Event of the Year 2020.

MATTHIAS MAUTE

Matthias Maute has carved out an impressive international reputation not only as one of the great recorder and baroque flute virtuosos of his generation, but also as a composer and conductor. The Washington Post hailed him as “one of the greatest recorder players on the North American musical scene”.

Since Matthias Maute’s nomination as its artistic director in 2019, Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec has increased the number of its concerts from three to a dozen per year in Québec and Canada, making a stellar impression in performances in the Maison symphonique with soprano Karina Gauvin (including an album recorded with ATMA Classique) and concerts at the Montréal Baroque Festival and Ottawa’s Music and Beyond festival.
