Pentaèdre

As a unique musical ensemble in the Canadian landscape, Pentaèdre is committed to explore and present to the public a diversified and original chamber music repertoire, developed in the tradition of music for winds. Strongly committed to refresh the classical concert concept, Pentaèdre crosses the borders between artistic disciplines and reintegrates performing arts into the concert: musicians become complete artists by performing with - and becoming - dancers, actors, mimes or singers.

Campbell/Afiara

Campbell/Afiara widens the definition of classical music to include music from many genres that have withstood the test of time. The great works of Mozart and Schubert  share the stage with Brazilian choros from the 19th century, early 20th century ragtime and blues, and the gypsy jazz classics of 1930’s Paris. Ever optimistic and searching, Campbell/Afiara concerts include future classics composed especially for the group by composers Allan Gilliland and jazz guitarist Graham Campbell.
