Classical music with rockstar panache – effervescent and uncompromising. Montreal’s cutting-edge classical string band Collectif9 has been gathering steam since its 2011 debut, attracting diverse audiences in varied spaces. Known for energized, innovative arrangements of classical repertoire, Collectif9 heralds a new age in genre-bending classical performance.
Collectif9 has already performed over 80 concerts across North America, Europe, and Asia; from outdoor concerts at Canadian summer festivals, to winter tours in the north, to Christmas-time in China, the ensemble combines the power of an orchestra with the crispness of a chamber ensemble.
