The Centre des musiciens du monde’s Fall Musical Encounters: Unique Concerts and Free Activities

The Centre des musiciens du monde announces its “Rencontres musicales d’automne” program, which will be held on October 9 and 10 at the Saint-Enfant-Jésus church in Montreal’s Mile-End.

Fourteen musicians from the 2020 creative residency cohort took advantage of the summer to reclaim their space at the Centre and make it resonate with their musical creations. The four works that will be presented on October 9 and 10 are new creations composed during residencies. Inspired by traditions of the world and turned toward new horizons, these creations will reveal themselves vigorously and beautifully to the public!

Tickets for these concerts are 10$. In parallel, free interactive workshops will be held to discover various instruments and repertoires from all over the world.
