Le Vivier

Presenter / Montréal, Québec

Pierrette Gingras, general manager

Le Vivier is without a doubt the most important initiative yet devised to build the new music community in Québec. Le Vivier is a specialized consortium of 33 organizations and ensembles working in the fields of contemporary music, electroacoustic music, musique actuelle, improvised music, lyric music, noise music, and multidisciplinary and digital music. It includes artists working with invented instruments, young emerging artists, 50-year old institutions, artistic directors, composers, soloists, and musicians. Our goal is to create a unique new music crossroads in Montréal. Le Vivier includes concert halls, rehearsal rooms, an interpretation centre, artist residencies, a production and promotion cooperative, and more. Le Vivier is designed to cover the whole discipline of new music, to catalyze the scene so as to build new bridges between these artists and their audiences.
