Ensemble Caprice to open 2015 – 2016 Season at Bourgie Hall

Artistic Director Matthias Maute and Ensemble Caprice will perform more than 40 concerts in Montreal, throughout Quebec, British Columbia, The Northwest Territories, The United States and even China, where the group travelled in early September. The orchestra will join forces with the Theatre of Early Music Choir, directed by Daniel Taylor for their September 19 season opening concert at Bourgie Hall on Sherbrooke St.

The program will include Handel’s Funeral Anthem for Queen Caroline and Psalms and Concertos by Vivaldi.

During the 9th Montreal Bach Festival, Ensemble Caprice and le Choeur Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal  directed by Chris Jackson will perform a Bach family program, at Maison Symphonique at Place des Arts on November 27. Soloists will include soprano Shannon Mercer, contra-tenor Leandro Marziotte, tenor Rufus Muller, and baritone Clayton Kennedy.

Moving into 2016, there will be an Easter Sunday afternoon concert on March 27 at Bourgie Hall; featuring a continuation of last year’s Bach Cantatas. The Easter Oratorio and the BWV 6 Cantata will feature soloists soprano Jana Miller, mezzo-soprano Maude Brunet, tenor Philip Gagne, and baritone Dion Mazerolle. It promises to be a wonderful musical Easter celebration.

In early September, Ensemble Caprice performed a series of eight Salsa Baroque concerts in China. The group’s Salsa Baroque CD earned a nomination for Album of the Year at the 2015 Juno Awards. The group will also travel to Indianapolis, having already travelled to Montana for the Baroque Festival in Paradise.

Ensemble Caprice recorded their 18th album in the spring of 2015, and will be released on Analekta, Canada’s leading classical music label.
