DANCES AROUND THE WORLD

A turnkey concert that you can easily book

Indoor or outdoor venue

conducted by
Jean-François Rivest
 
± 70 minutes
without intermission

Inviting our 15 virtuoso musicians and their conductor Jean-François Rivest offers your audience and subscribers the sound quality of a prestigious orchestra in a less costly format than symphonic orchestras but more powerful than more intimate chamber music ensembles.

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.
