Histoires sans paroles – Harmonium symphonique concert trilogy

receives a Gold Ticket


Last chance to catch “Pure Symphony”

and “High Mass” in Montréal and Québec


Montréal, May 30, 2023 – GSI Musique is pleased to announce that the Histoires sans paroles – Harmonium symphonique concert series — an experience in three chapters, namely, “The Original Creation,” “Pure Symphony” and “High Mass” — obtained a Gold Ticket (billet d’or) from ADISQ. The official presentation will take place during the Sucré Salé program broadcast on TVA on June 13. Marking more than 50,000 tickets sold, the certification covers sales since spring 2022 for all concerts performed in Trois-Rivières, Montréal and Québec. The month of June will see the very last performances of two of the chapters as the series, unanimously hailed by audiences and critics alike throughout its long run, prepares to take its final bows.

“PURE SYMPHONY”

This is the last chance to catch Histoires sans paroles – Harmonium symphonique as a purely symphonic experience with no amplification or special effects, in venues renowned for their superb sound quality. Inspired by the album Histoires sans paroles – Harmonium symphonique arranged by Simon Leclerc, the concert will feature two vocal performances by singers Kim Richardson and Luce Dufault. With staging by Marcella Grimaux (Noisy Head Studio) under the artistic direction of Nicolas Lemieux, the event promises to be a night to remember!
