Oktopus

A mix of genres and inspirations for a spectacular concert

 

 

Friday January 24, 2020 at 10am and 1pm

For ages 8 and up

60 minutes

 

The Oktopus group is an instrumental octet that plays music from Eastern Europe that has been transfigured by their unbridled arrangements. With bows and keyboards, valves and embouchures, the eight musicians will quicken your pulse, ring some bells and get you into party mode. With music is full of joie de vivre, Oktopus travels around the world creating memorable evenings and celebratory events for enthusiastic audiences. Oktopus is a heterogeneous, in-your-face blend that straddles the melodies of Eastern Europe, the heritage of the great classical composers and the songs of Quebec in what might be called a Quebec classical-Balkan klezmer band. Oktopus is… in a word… spectentacular!

 

Musicians: Gabriel Paquin-Buki, Matthieu Bourget, Mathieu Bourret, Maxime Philippe, Marilène Provencher-Leduc, Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille, Vanessa Marcoux, Laurianne Bellavance.
