A Canadian musical start for October! For our first concert of the season, the Canadian Cultural Centre is happy to welcome you back to our auditorium! Join us on Friday, October 1st, 2021 at 8pm to discover and hear Cheng² Duo on stage!

Not in Paris ? This concert will also be broadcasted live on our Facebook Page!

Hailed as one of the “30 most talented Canadian classical musicians under 30” by CBC Music (Canada), the Chinese-Canadian brother-sister duo has been performing for over 17 years, presenting both classical masterpieces and contemporary repertoire. 

For this evening at the Canadian Cultural Centre, Silvie and Bryan invite you into the “Salon de Nadia Boulanger” to pay tribute to this key figure in 20th century French classical music, as well as to her two students, Astor Piazzolla and Elliott Carter. On stage, the duo enriches its musical conversation with interpretations of another great French composer of the 20th century, Francis Poulenc, before revisiting a Beethoven sonata. 

To the sound of the piano and the Stradivarius cello, let yourself be carried away by the music and the infectious energy of these two brilliant musicians! 

Book your seat now! And to help you wait until October 1st, listen to some of their pieces on their YouTube channel!
