Here we go! Our first virtual micro-concert.  We bring you three songs by Georges Bizet performed by Canadian soprano Karina Gauvin and our festival’s founding director Stéphane Lemelin.

Ms.Gauvin briefly explains the background of the songs, so no need to say any more here. However, do check out Stéphane playing a beautifully restored 1859 Erard grand piano, an instrument owned by many notable pianists and composers of its day.

 

The concerts will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and you will remain available for five days. They can be watched through this website, through our Facebook page, and links will also be mailed to our newsletter subscribers (subscribe here). We hope that you will enjoy these videos as much as our artists enjoyed creating them for you.
