Under the direction of maestro Iwan Edwards, I Medici di McGill presents a Benefit Concert to support Viva!Sistema, a music education program for elementary school children in Point St. Charles. The concert features works by Antonin Dvorak: his Symphony No. 9 “From the New World,” and the Cello Concerto in B minor with Stéphane Tétreault as well as a presentation by the children in the program.
Stephane is one of Canada’s most promising young cellists. In addition to being selected to compete in the prestigious 2011 Tchaikovsky International Competition, Stéphane received numerous award including the First Prize in the Montreal Symphony Orchestra Standard Life-OSM 2007 Competition, the 2013 Choquette-Symcox Award from the Jeunesses Musicales du Canada Foundation, and the F. Lindsay Award 2013.
Viva!Sistema is a program of the Quebec Music Educators Association, that provides free music lessons to children after school. Without our support, this important program cannot continue.
