The Project came into life because my students and I wanted to organize a concert we could present at the École de musique of the Université de Sherbrooke as well as outside the institution. The project creates links between students, the local community and the public. My students also gain experience in concert production and marketing because they are solicited in the creative process.
Hand of Frederic Chopin
The Chopin Project has been presented at Concerts de la Chapelle in Saint-Camille.
Students will perform in concert excerpt of Las Meninas. This piece, composed by Canadian composer John Rea, is based on Kinderszenen of Robert Schumann. This performance will be paired with pieces of Brahms and Schumann performed by Jean-François Latour.
Next concert: February 21, 2016 at Belle Chapelle de Sherbrooke
