Cairn Ensemble: US Tour

A rare opportunity to hear Ensemble Cairn, one of the world's most exciting new music French ensembles in its American and Canadian tour from October 16 to 27.

Cairn Ensemble has existed since 1998 with Jérôme Combier as artistic director, and Guillaume Bourgogne as musical director. Cairn Ensemble's intention is to create high-quality contemporary music concerts and the feeling of a listening path, to put quite different types of music side by side.. Some of Cairn's concerts confront other art forms, such as the plastic arts, photography and video, as well as other types of music : the ensemble has had encounters with the jazz musicians Marc Ducret, John Hollenbeck and the famous Fado singer Cristina Branco. The Cairn ensemble wishes to be a group that has a conductor as well as a group that gives rigorous performances of chamber music.

In New York, Ensemble Cairn will perform with New York Chamber Ensemble Argento, a project supported by FACE Foundation.

Cairn Ensemble will be performing in Montréal on October 25 & 26.
