I Musici de Montréal reconnects with the historic roots of the chamber orchestra and comes directly to you to give you a getaway in terms of imagination, dreams and dances. During this joyful concert, while graceful and accessible, you will hear the music that accompanies the dances of several countries. Some are soft and languid, others are powerful and irresistibly uplifting. From the Austrian march and Argentina’s tango to the Romanian, Hungarian, Gypsy and Greek dances as well as the Viennese waltz, the German ländler and the Quebec rigodon, there’s something for everyone and anyone’s liking.

By inviting our 15 musicians virtuoso as well as their conductor, Jean-François Rivest, you will be transported in a completely different setting, where the various countries and their music will make you want to get up and dance!
