Musique de chambre à Sainte-Pétronille

21, Église Sainte-Pétronille Road, Island of Orleans

Website

Now an unmissable summer tradition on the Island of Orlaans, Musique de chambre à Sainte-Pétronille began its adventure in 1983 in the beautiful little stone church of the village of the same name. With a seating capacity of just over 300, it has proven to be an ideal venue for the presentation of intimate concerts.

Poetically hidden in the green valleys of the western tip of the island, its 1871 bell tower has become the emblem of our summer concerts. The lush nature that surrounds it, its bright interior and its remarkable acoustics combine the pleasure of the eye with that of the ear. The singing of the crickets and birds, which can be heard when the doors and windows are open on a sunny evening, adds to the charm and uniqueness of the experience.

Grand winner of the Prix d’Europe in 1977, graduate of the famous Julliard School in New York where he studied with the legendary Adèle Marcus, pianist Michel Franck is certainly one of the most appreciated musicians here. After a long career as an educator, he now devotes himself to his vocation as an interpreter. For several years, each of his recital performances has been a real event for musicians and music lovers, and it is an immense honour to receive him this year in Sainte-Pétronille as a soloist.

Cameron Crozman, cello and Meagan Milatz, piano

Sainte-Pétronille Church, Island of Orleans

It is impossible to resist the personality and panache of the cellist Cameron Crozman. Among the stars of his instrument in Canada, he garnered rave reviews wherever he performed, in Canada or Europe. With the partner of the fabulous pianist Meagan Milatz, who made a great impression in Sainte-Pétronille last year during a quick replacement, these two artists offer us a varied and contrasting musical journey to end this anniversary season.
