International collaborations are back for Quasar!

Montreal, October 26, 2021 — Only a week after QUÉBEC-PAYS-BASQUE, our concert with Trio Zukan co-produced by the Groupe le Vivier, Quasar flies to Västerås, Sweden, where they will perform the first of a nine-concert series in Europe. There will be some collaborations with European ensembles, workshops and masterclasses, festival entries and many international premieres from Quebec and international composers.

Quasar takes in hand its 9th Opus Prize, along with a grant in recognition of its international outreach !

We are still on cloud 9 about the 24th Opus Awards Gala, where we won the “International Outreach” award! A huge thank you to the Conseil québécois de la musique and to CINARS for their consideration!
