The Université de Montréal’s Atelier de musique contemporaine pays tribute to one of their own: Lorraine Vaillancourt and the Atelier’s student musicians celebrate Sokolović’s music, which has sounded throughout the university’s hallways since 1990. In a programme mainly devoted to Ana Sokolović’s chamber works, students will enthusiastically submerse listeners in the composer’s musical universe.

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.
