About the EMUC
Supported by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ), and Music Performance Trust Fun (MPTF) the Escouades aim to celebrate, share and surprise by presenting a deeply original and flamboyant program. True spontaneous concerts, the Escouades bring new music to the heart of the city, and sometimes even to the whole province of Quebec! They appear in different neighborhoods and public places to meet citizens in unexpected places. A true journey, a refreshing musical escapade, a window that opens on another world.
