A unique ensemble in the Canadian musical landscape, Pentaèdre explores and presents a diversified and original chamber music repertoire to the public.

Strongly committed to bringing new life to classical concert performances, Pentaèdre crosses the borders between artistic disciplines by integrating performing arts into their concerts: the musicians perform alongside dancers, actors, mimes or singers. Their 4 to 7 concerts season may thus include researches, transcriptions, creations, guest ensembles or artists (piano, singers, strings), collaborations or exchanges, works for young audiences as well as staging challenging interdisciplinary projects.

Over the course of the past decade, Pentaèdre has performed with renowned guest artists such as tenors Christoph Prégardien and Rufus Muller, baritones Russell Braun and Phillip Addis, soprano Karina Gauvin and pianists Naida Cole, David Jalbert and Iwan Llewelyn-Jones.

The ensemble has also continued to pursue collaborations with chamber ensembles including the Penderecki String Quartet and Molinari Quartet. The ensemble has toured extensively across Canada, and also in the United States, Europe and the Middle East.
