The Festival Stradivaria in innovation mode
For its 22nd version, the Festival Stradivaria, previously known as the Festival International Hautes-Laurentides, is reinventing itself in order to pursue the presentation of its concerts and shows.
Initially scheduled for July 3 to 28, most of the musical events have been delayed until fall 2020. Presentations of concerts and shows in Mont-Tremblant, Saint-Faustin-Lac-Carré, Rivière-Rouge, Labelle, Nominingue, Mont-Laurier, St-Donat and St-Alexis-des-Monts have been confirmed.
The program information should be released, to the best of our knowledge, during the month of July.
Festival Stradivaria will be presenting a concert in Terrebonne on July 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Cité des sports in a drive-in movie format. Violin rock star Alexandre Da Caosta and his Stradivarius will take to the stage with the Taurey Butler Jazz Trio and the string quartet of Festival Stradivaria.
They will present Stradivarius Électrique with, notably, Vivaldi in a Hard Rock version, Bach in Boogie & Soft Jazz, as well as a futuristic version of Pachelbel and his famous Canon.
The Festival Stradivaria team, more determined than ever to ensure that musical culture persists, has also broadcast on Facebook a superb video of Alexandre Da Costa. The famous violinist is accompanied by musicians of La Musique du Royal 22e Régiment of the Canadian Armed Forces to present a version of the beloved Amazing Grace.
The video is available on the Festival’s Facebook page as well as on that of La Musique du Royal 22e Régiment
