Biography

Sixtrum

Sixtrum is a professional percussion ensemble in residence at the Faculty of Music of the Université de Montréal.

Created in 2007, the ensemble reunites Montréal percussionists João Catalão, Philip Hornsey, Kristie Ibrahim, Julien Compagne, Julien Grégoire, and Fabrice Marandol. Together, they share a desire to renew and develop a repertoire for percussion ensemble introduced in the second half of the 20th century.

As part of their mission for the development of percussion in Canada and abroad, Sixtrum strives to explore the extraordinary sonic universe of percussion through traditional concerts for percussion alone, as well as in more spectacular events including collaborations with creators and performers from other artistic disciplines.
