A one-of-a-kind concert experience is coming to Cornwall on Saturday, June 22nd.

The celebrated Classiqu’Arts Productions SDG is launching its 2019 season with a performance by the renowned InSpirations ensemble in one of Cornwall’s most beautiful and historic venues – Nativity Co-Cathedral.

Founded in 2015, InSpirations stands out for its unique sound and its interpretations combining classical, jazz, world music and contemporary musical techniques.

The formation features five passionate virtuosos entirely devoted to their art – clarinetist André Moisan (Montreal Symphony Orchestra), organist Jean-Willy Kunz (organist in residence, Montreal Symphony Orchestra), drummer Camil Belisle, trombonist Hélène Lemay and bassist Frédéric Alarie.

“It’s a chance to see world-renowned Canadian performers in a truly unique concert venue,” said Jean-Roland Tremblay, Executive Director of Classiqu’Arts. “It will be a night of artistic grandeur in a divine setting.”

Attendees can expect to hear familiar favourites like ‘Fly me to the moon’ along with classical and jazz improvisations of Chick Corea and many more. A digital projection screen will be in place for spectators to get an up-close view of all the musicians performing.

The concert begins at 7:30 pm.

About Classiqu’Arts

The June 22nd performance at Nativity is one of three concerts planned by Classiqu’Arts for its 2019 season.

On Saturday August 17th, Classiqu’Arts returns to Nativity Co-Cathedral for Without Borders featuring the interactive and world-music group Kleztory and unique and delicate performances by Aboriginal composer and performer Barbara Croall, both accompanied by the much appreciated Classiqu’Arts String Orchestra. The event will explore and celebrate the cross-cultural influences that have pervaded classical music from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera.

The 2019 series will wrap up on the afternoon of Sunday, August 18th with Meditations of Summer in beautiful St. Raphael’s Ruins. The concert will again feature Aboriginal composer and flautist Barbara Croall along with performances by other world-renowned musicians and local talents.
