NOCCA presents Collectif9

Montreal's cutting-edge classical string band collectif9 has been gathering steam since its 2011 debut, attracting diverse audiences in varied spaces. Known for energized, innovative arrangements of classical repertoire, collectif9 employs lights, staging, and amplification more commonly seen at rock acts, and heralds a new age in genre-bending classical performance. collectif9 has already performed over 70 concerts across Canada and internationally, from summer appearances at the Festival de Lanaudière and Ottawa Chamberfest, to Québec's Cote-Nord in February, to Christmas-time in China. The ensemble combines the power of an orchestra with the crispness of a chamber ensemble for a unique experience.

collectif9's debut album, Volksmobiles, was released in February 2016: described as "dazzling" (The WholeNote), the album exudes "great brio and vitality" (Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review), capturing the brilliant colour and driving energy of a collectif9 live performance. Featuring folk-inspired music by Brahms, Bartók, Schnittke, and André Gagnon, collectif9's new album also presents the world premiere recording of Canadian composer Geof Holbrook's Volksmobiles, written for the ensemble.

During the 2016-17 season, collectif9 will take Volksmobiles on the road again, performing across the United States, Québec, and Ontario. At home, the ensemble is keeping busy planning new projects and collaborations - keep your ears to the ground! Future seasons will see the group return to Asia, as well as performances in Europe and Canada's west coast.

The musicians and friends met as students at Université de Montréal and McGill University: they wanted to create something different yet complementary to traditional representations of classical music, more relatable to pop culture. Learning from the classical works that have influenced non-classical musicians and the structure of pop concerts, collectif9 looks for ways to break the stigma of inapproachability, searches for new ways of expression within the classical medium, and attempts to foster communication and collaboration between artists and within their community.

collectif9 has received a great deal of support and encouragement, and are very grateful to the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts de Montréal, FACTOR, and Musitechnic.
