Productions SuperMusique invites you to enjoy yourself while gambling — and raising the biddings of the silent auction again and again… — as part of its benefit event taking place on Tuesday May 6, 2008 at La Sala Rossa. There, you’ll discover all kind of items, charmingly quaint objects that will make you laugh or make you drool. Food-tasting and performances with musicans of the Ensemble SuperMusique are also on programme.
Productions SuperMusique, as part of the Montréal/Nouvelles Musiques, will take part in the “Série Hommage” Claude Vivier and will celebrate the creator… premiering new pieces!

The Suoni Per Il Popolo festival will take place on June 1-30, 2007 in Montréal.

Joane Hétu will present her Filature project in which she mixes rock, minimalist music, improvisations with visual and scenic components. This lively artist will be on stage with the Ensemble SuperMusique (Mélanie Auclair, Guido Del Fabbro, Jean Derome, Claire Gignac, Normand Guilbeault, Diane Labrosse, Danielle Palardy Roger, Pierre Tanguay, Némo Venba), and visual artist Pierre Hébert. This concert will be presented on May 21, 2007 at cinéma Laurier in Victoriaville as part of the Festival international de musique actuelle de Victoriaville (23 concerts of “musique actuelle” — detailed schedule on their website). Until then, you may want to go by a virtual roundabout way and listen to some online audio clips of her album Nouvelle musique d’hiver.
