Activities

Quebec Scene

May 2
Constantinople
8 p.m.
Auditorium
$20

The city of Constantinople was the legendary crossroads of Eastern and Western culture. This group's interpretations of songs from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance draw on their knowledge of classical Persian and ancient European music that leaves plenty of room for improvisation and creativity. Constantinople is now tackling North America with its Terra Nostra project, exploring 17th-century Mexican music with musicians from the Veracruz region.

Quebec Scene is a multidisciplinary arts festival organized by the National Arts Centre. Tickets are available at the National Arts Centre.

May 3
Jorane
8 p.m.
Auditorium
$20

The Parisian press has compared her to Tori Amos, Sinead O'Connor and Loreena McKennitt, but Jorane defies classification. Often singing in a language of her own invention, somewhere between onomatopoeia and automatism, a language that breaks all the boundaries, this virtuoso cellist has been acclaimed across Canada and internationally, from Europe to Japan. A musical approach that draws on classical and neo-Celtic traditions.

Quebec Scene is a multidisciplinary arts festival organized by the National Arts Centre. Tickets are available at the National Arts Centre.

May 4
Liu Fang
8 p.m.
Auditorium
$20

Winner of the prestigious 2006 Coup de coeur award for outstanding recording from France's Académie Charles Cros, this young Montréal artist from the Chinese province of Yunnan, is a virtuoso of the pipa and the Guzheng sitar. She is a graceful performer, caressing her instrument to release ethereal melodies that reveal its full range of delicate expression.

Quebec Scene is a multidisciplinary arts festival organized by the National Arts Centre. Tickets are available at the National Arts Centre.

May 5
Oliver Jones Trio
8 p.m.
Auditorium
$35

Internationally acclaimed piano legend Oliver Jones is one of Canada's finest musicians. He and his longtime friend Oscar Peterson were among the greats who defined the golden age of jazz in Montréal. He announced his official "retirement" in 1999 but his adoring fans would have none of it, and by popular demand he's embarked on a second career with undiminished energy and élan.

Quebec Scene is a multidisciplinary arts festival organized by the National Arts Centre. Tickets are available at the National Arts Centre.
