2017-2018 SEASON

IMMERSIVE PROGRAM DANS LA COUR DES GRANDS

The immersive program Dans la cour des grands (literally: In the big leagues) offers to young students of high schools of the Vallée-du-Haut-Saint-Laurent to join the professional musicians OSVHSL for a rehearsal dedicated to them.

These young musicians can therefore have a look on and play classical repertoire to which they have limited access, this compared to their normal high school directory, which confines them to fanfare or harmony music. They are also immersed in sharp conditions of interpretation of classical works with professionnal string quintet.

This immersive workshop wants also to overcome a number of problems related to the 4th art: the disengagement of the Ministère de l'éducation du Québec in the musical training of young people, reducing their number in music schools, the lack of college, university or conservatoire music school in Montérégie and the observed attrition of the public of classical music in general.

The two first versions of the program have been held during springs 2016 and 2017 and have been resounding successes, ensuring the pursuit of Dans la cour des grands during the next seasons of the OSVHSL.

CONFERENCES CAUSE TOUJOURS !

Conferences and courses on the history and the genesis of works presented at the concerts of OSVHSL: How does a musical piece is built? How does it pertain to a specific artistic period and why? What are the period instruments played by the musicians of the OSVHSL and what is the benefit to use them in the twenty-first century?

So many questions - and answers! - discussed at Cause toujours!, a program of talks and dialogues interspersed with music illustrations, for any customers wishing to rely on, whether before, during or after the concert, even delayed in time!

The first versions of this program took place at the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield MUSO - "André Gagnon: de la pop au baroque" - and at Église Saint-Michel in Vaudreuil-Dorion - "The Bear, Mannheim and the fatherhood of Haydn"- respectively in April and June 2017, and have been very successful!
