MNM 2009 is Already Behind Us

A celebratory mood prevailed over the festival closing, following a tribute to Claude Vivier by the French vocal ensemble Les Jeunes Solistes. With the support of the French consulate and the Fondation Vivier, the festival held a small reception open to all to underline the tremendous success of the event… and as a way of saying “see you next time!” Photos of all festival concerts are now online, along with a few “bonus” shots.

MNM 2009: From Full House to Full House

Within three days of MNM opening, over 2000 people had gathered for the event! On a Sunday afternoon, 1133 individuals assembled at the Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste to take part in the collective performance entitled “Chantez avec Raôul Duguay!” The “Totems Electriques” event (co-produced with Productions Totem Contemporain) had to be given a repeat performance so that all of the people who showed up for it could have a chance to hear Jean-François Laporte’s celebrated instruments. Some 40 individuals had to be turned away from the Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal + (ECM+) concert for lack of seats. In short, the first few days of the festival got off to a real bang with lots left in store for the rest of the event.

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.
