Ensemble ALKEMIA- CANCELLED

| The Mack
This a cappella vocal trio captures the best in French-Canadian folk music in their newest show. The ensemble skillfully moves between medieval music and French-language folk songs in a program curated for audiences of all ages. Mastering musical arrangements and compositions, the trio performs forgotten jewels, new works, and revisited classics in a dazzling and refreshing way.

The performance will be presented bilingually (English/French).

In their newest show, Coming Home – Our Folk Songs Revisited, audiences can expect to hear new renditions of classic songs, such as “V’la l’bon vent”, “C’est dans le mois de mai”, and “À la claire fontaine”. The performance references Québecois historical figures such as Marius Barbeau and Father Charles-Émile Gadbois.

 

Ensemble ALKEMIA is founded and directed by singer-instrumentalists Dorothéa Ventura and Jean-François Daignault, and includes vocalist Ghislaine Deschambault. The trio has performed at numerous festivals, special events, and cabarets that have allowed them to introduce their unique repertoire to audiences unfamiliar with a cappella music. The ensemble was a finalist at the medieval and renaissance Pan American music competition Early Music America 2006 in New York. In collaboration with Youth and Music Canada, they created the 2014 children’s show A World for Christmas, which was performed over a hundred times in Québec and Ontario. Ensemble ALKEMIA has been a finalist multiple times for Concert of the Year at the Opus Awards in Québec.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
