If last week was the week of the sitar, then next week is most definitely the week of the santoor! Four concerts with Duo Samskara, my duo with talented santoor player Jonathan Voyer.
On Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, October 7 and 8, in Quebec City, we'll be performing for the launch of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec's newest exhibition, Into India - South Asian Paintings from the San Diego Museum of Art. Tuesday night is a pre-launch of the exhibition (sorry, not open to the general public), and Wednesday night is the vernissage for MNBAQ subscribers and guests (info here).
Back in Montreal, on Thursday night, October 9, at 7:30pm, we will be performing a concert as part of UQAM's India Week, at the Grande Bibliothèque. Julie Beaulieu will also be presenting a Bharata Natyam dance performance. Here is the link for the Facebook event page, and the direct link to purchase tickets.
Finally, on Saturday, October 11, Jonathan and I will be providing musical accompaniment for a theatrical reading of the epic Ramayana, scripted by Alexis Martin of the Nouveau Théâtre expérimental, with actors Alexis Martin, Daniel Brière, Sharon Ibgui, and Benoit Drouin-Germain playing the numerous roles.
