Les Boreades de Montreal

Les Boreades de Montreal

Founded by Francis Colpron in 1991, Les Boréades de Montréal focuses on early music. The ensemble has chosen an interpretative approach in keeping with the spirit of the Baroque era, plays on period instruments and adheres to historical norms of performance practice

Les Boréades performs an annual series of concerts at Montréal's historic Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours chapel with international guest artists.

The group has toured extensively in Canada and abroad, taking part in several renowned festivals. Further to this, the group has performed at the Frick Collection of New-York, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Salle Gaveau in Paris, Vancouver Festival, Musikfest Bremen and at the Alter Musik Regensburg.

Les Boréades won the Prix Opus for best performance of the 1998-1999 season, bestowed by the Conseil québécois de la musique in December 1999, and the same prize a year later for best recording of the year in early and classical music.
