The 4th and final concert of the PEI Symphony’s 50th Anniversary Season, entitled Tenor Horn, and Strings, will feature performances by Nova Scotian tenor vocalist Marcel d’Entremont, as well as Montreal-based french horn player Louis-Philippe Marsolais.

Marsolais’ solo, chamber music and orchestral playing has earned him awards from such international competitions as Geneva, Rovereto, Trévoux and the prestigious ARD Competition in Munich. He is also a horn professor at the Université de Montréal and the Domaine Forget Summer Academy. His most recent CD (featuring the Mozart Horn Concertos) just received an Opus Prize for best classical, romantic, post-romantic and impressionist album.

As part of his visit to Charlottetown, Marsolais will also be conducting a brass masterclass at UPEI the Friday before the concert. During Sunday’s concert, he will be performing Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 3 as well as the accompanying solo horn part to Benjamin Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, which will also showcase the concert’s featured tenor, Marcel d’Entremont.

Originally from Merigomish, Nova Scotia, Marcel d’Entremont is a recent graduate of the Artist Diploma program from McGill University, where he was a Schulich Scholar, studying on full scholarship. He also has a Masters of Music from the University of Toronto, and a Bachelors of Music from Acadia University. d’Entremont is a frequent soloist and has performed with the Seton Cantata Choir, Nova Voce Provincial Men’s Choir, South Shore Chorale, Nova Sinfonia, Maritime Concert Opera, Confederation Singers, Cantabile Chamber Singers, Annex Singers and Talisker Players, and the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and Grand Philharmonic Choir. For the past five years Marcel has been a featured soloist with the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo, performing alongside musicians from around the world for audiences in the tens of thousands.

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.
