You’ve never been able to be this close to the music: to hear it, to see it and be touched by it. In a rethought Bourgie Hall, you’ll find I Musici in the centre of the room, surrounded by… you. The conductor leads you through these concerts that last from 60 to 65 minutes with edifying commentaries and fascinating anecdotes. What’s more, one hour before the concert starts, we offer coffee (matinée) or wine (cocktail hour) that you can enjoy with us or among friends. The name may mean small, but our I Concertini have great character and guarantee pleasure and conviviality.

A s a taste of things to come, I Musici opens the season with a poetic, intimate, epicurean voyage in France. A musical Déjeuner sur l’herbe (Luncheon on the Grass), it plucks tender morsels from the most beautiful scores of Debussy, Roussel, Offenbach, Lili Boulanger and their contemporaries. Cameron Crozman, a distinguished, versatile cellist with remarkable technique, joins this musical — and movable — feast.
60-65 minute concert with no intermission. No reserved seating.
