Entre Nous: Quasar and Thierry Tidrow draw upon language, intimacy and society in an innovative musical theatre project

The Urban Contemporary Music Squads are back for a third edition, across Quebec

In 2021-2022, we celebrated the 27th year of our career amidst a global pandemic very much still in full swing. However, closures of performance halls, re-openings (but at reduced capacities) and public sanitary measures were not about to prevent us from continuing to share creative music from here and elsewhere with the general public.

Quasar's 2021-2022 season in stats:

After the pandemic forced us to take a short break in 2021, the SALT New Music Festival is back at the University of Victoria! Presented by Tsilumos Ensemble in collaboration with Victoria Composers Collective and Quasar Saxophone Quartet, there will be a total of three live-streamed concerts followed by an après-concert discussion session with performers, composers, and audience members. Quasar will participate in two of these three concerts. 

On December 15, the Conseil Québécois de la Musique announced its nominations for the Opus Awards Gala of the 2020-2021 season, which will take place on March 6th.

We are very pleased and honored to announce that our latest album De Souffles et de Machines III is one of the finalists in the Album of the Year in the category - Current, Electro-acoustic Music!

Thank you and congratulations to the participants and our collaborators:

composers Jimmie LeBlanc, Georgia Spiropoulos, Annesley Black and Sergej Maingardt;

Quasar saxophone quartet will be in a professional development residency at the Centre d’Expérimentation Musicale (CEM) in the month of December to present the concert Ode au métal.
