— Special edition concert taking place on October 20th. A portion of the funds collected will go to the Kiuna Institution.

Caroline Monnet is an extremely sought-after visual artist and a renowned filmmaker with a sensitive and warm personality as well as a vibrant imagination. Influenced by a convergence of French and Anishinaabe backgrounds, Caroline truly embodies the humanity of modern culture. We have given her the opportunity to select works for this concert; through her musical selections and excerpts from her own movies, she will paint a captivating sonic and poetic landscape highly steeped in nature and seasons, two aspects that are part of Indigenous traditions. Throughout the evening, guided by Caroline Monnet, you will hear works by Britten, Brahms, Shostakovich, Walker and Pärt. You will also delight in a premiere by Navajo composer Raven Chacon. Raven won the 2022 Pulitzer Prize, making him the first Indigenous winner of this prestigious award.


Caroline Monnet
Visual artist and filmmaker

Born to an Anishinaabe mother and a French father, Caroline Monnet is a multidisciplinary artist from Outaouais based in Montreal. After studying at the University of Ottawa and the University of Granada in Spain, she pursued a career in visual arts and film. Her work is regularly presented internationally and can also be found in prestigious museum, private and corporate collections.  Her practice is often minimalist yet emotionally charged. Monnet has become known for her work with industrial materials, combining the vocabulary of popular and traditional visual cultures with the tropes of modernist abstraction to create unique hybrid forms. She is represented by Blouin Division Gallery.

We are proud to announce the Tous des maestros project in collaboration with the organization Le Temps d'une Pause and made possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Quebec and the City of Montreal under the Montreal Cultural Development Agreement. Over the next 6 weeks, a group of seniors from the Emmaus low-income housing project in the Saint-Michel district will have the unique opportunity to attend musical art workshops with a music therapist, our chef Jean-François Rivest and our musicians. At the very end of the project, participants will challenge themselves to conduct the orchestra of 15 musicians in the rehearsal room in place of our conductor. A beautiful goal that stimulates surpassing and self-esteem through the comforting medium of classical music.



Our success depends on your support.
