“Rives & Dérives” – Symphonies Portuaires: March 4, 2012

Posted on

Sandeep Bhagwati has been commissioned to conceive and compose a “new harbour symphony” for this year’s Symphonies Portuaires, an annual concert in the frozen Old Port of Montréal. He has been given the opportunity to use the sirens of all ships “stranded” in the port by winter ice, the bells of the churches and many other sound sources to create half-an-hour of musical elation to a walk along the frozen river, on a Sunday afternoon. For this event Bhagwati will be collaborating with the 30-voice women’s choir Choeur Maha led by Kathy Kennedy on a composition called Rives & Dérives.

The concert will take place the follow Sunday March 4, 2012 outside the Musée Pointe-A-Caillières at 1:30pm.
