Cinquième salle - Place des Arts Book

For its last concert of 2021, under the direction of Jean-Nicolas Trottier, the Orchestre national de jazz de Montréal is pleased to present percussionist Marie-José Simard in the creation of a three-movement concerto that she commissioned to be written by three renowned jazz composers and arrangers: Christine Jensen, Marianne Trudel and Jean Nicolas Trottier.

In 40 years, Marie-Josée Simard has premiered 13 concertos for marimba and vibraphone with renowned symphony and string orchestras. In 2019, the idea came to her to create a 14th concerto with the Orchestre national de jazz by calling upon these Quebec composers, experienced in writing for both large jazz and symphonic ensembles.
