Les Voix humaines et friends
From the tavern to the theatre: Sparrows, Doves, Ravens, Owls
Les Voix humaines (Susie Napper and Margaret Little) on violas da gamba are joined by Charles Daniel, tenor, and Antoine Malette-Chénier on triple harp.
From the sparrow’s innocence to the lusty dove, from the conniving raven to the owl with his portent of death, this program of music and songs from the Restoration is rife with humour! The dulcet tones of the harp and the saucy violas da gamba compliment the poet’s yarn.
July 14 2019
Brazilian Guitar Quartet
Latin Grammy Award winner, the Brazilian Guitar Quartet, has established itself as one of world’s leading guitar ensembles. Praised by the Washington Post for its “seductive beauty” and “virtuosic gusto,” the group’s unique combination, of regular six-string and extended-range eight-string guitars, allows for the exploration of original and unusual repertoire. They have performed around the world to ecstatic audience responses and rave reviews. Don’t miss this one!

Musicians from Les Violons du Roy
Among Québec’s and Canada’s greatest cultural ambassadors, the internationally renowned orchestra “Les Violons du Roy” takes its name from the celebrated court ensemble of the French kings.

Karen Young and Marianne Trudel
Joni Mitchell revisited
The ever eclectic voice of Karen Young is joined by the exceptional pianist and arranger, Marianne Trudel, for an atmospheric, intimate and moving exploration of the songs of Joni Mitchel. Liberty, tenderness, spontaneity and musical complicity are the hallmarks of this wonderful duo. This will be a pearl of a concert. Great musicians perform one of Canada’s – and the word’s – greatest song writers.

Zilien’s Notebook: Zazakèly
At the crossroads of music – Réunion Island!
Zazakèly is a concert based on maloya, the traditional music of Réunion. On this little island on the Silk Road in the middle of the Indian Ocean, music resounds from all over the world and peace prevails. This will be an astonishing and unifying journey with musicians from the Centre des musiciens du monde: Zilien Biret (Réunion) drums and wind instruments, Nazih Borish (Syria) oud, Nathaniel Huard (Canada) riq, and Sergiu Popa (Moldova) accordion.

The Gesualdo Six
Ensemble singing passionates
For their first Canadian Tour, The Gesualdo Six perform at CAMMAC
The Gesualdo Six is a vocal consort comprised of some of the UK’s finest young consort singers. Formed in March 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday in the chapel of Trinity College, Cambridge, the group further developed a passion for ensemble singing that for many of them stemmed from formative years as choristers in churches and cathedrals around the country. The recent release of their debut recording on Hyperion Records has been receiving excellent reviews.
This concert is not included in the summer 2018 concert passport. Tickets are sold separately.
