7:00 pm to 8:15 pm – Happy Hour Concerts Serie

Meagan Milatz, piano
Isabella D’Éloize Perron, violin

The sounds of Eastern Europe are introduced by the brooding voice of the violin which opens Rachmaninoff’s “Deux morceaux de salon”, followed by the yearning, fantasy-like “Aria” of Latvian-Canadian composer Imant Raminsh. “Coming To” by Greek-Canadian composer Christos Hatzis awakens us out of the slumber, into a tapestry of childhood memories woven by George Enescu in “Impressions d’enfance”: a Romanian fiddler in the street, an old beggar, a lullaby, the lonely sounds of a cricket, a storm raging through the windowpane in the middle of the night, and finally an apocalyptic sunrise where the light emerges, blinding and victorious.

In partnership with réZin, an aperitif is offered at 6 pm!

This delectable introduction to opera and lyrical singing is a treat for the eyes and ears!

Once upon a time – so ti do mi fa! – there were two cheerful singers who wanted to tell the tale of Hansel and Gretel in music. Their mischievous pal tried to lend them a helping hand, but he was so greedy and easily distracted that his foot would always end up in his mouth… or was that candy…? The two singers tried to think of a way to keep his attention on the task at hand… Aha! What if they gave him an important role to play in the story? Relive the tale savoured by candy lovers everywhere with this fanciful, playful concert. What better way to discover one of the most satisfying art forms in the world: opera!

30 minutes before each performance, snacks will be offered to the children!
