A Women’s Take on Chamber Music Improvisation

Music improvisation

Four talented musicians lend themselves to musical improvisation, creating entirely new pieces inspired by their captain’s prompts. Thanks to the naturally long, round reverberating acoustics of the Monastère des Augustines’ vaults, the artists can make their instrument resonate without amplification, creating pure moments of suspended time and, who knows, perhaps an opportunity for solemn contemplation. The title of the improvised pieces are nods to the history of women’s religious communities who, through their ceaseless work and tenacity throughout the ages, have contributed to the development and growth of Quebec.
