Clair-Obscur with Constantinople & A Filetta


Clair-Obscur with Constantinople & A Filetta

Date: Friday, June 12, 2020, 8 pm
Price: $40, $36 Friends, $30 students and seniors

Let the polyphonic melodies and sacred songs of Persia and Europe enchant you in a deeply moving concert from Museum-favourite Constantinople along with the all-male Corsican vocal group, A Filetta. Together in harmony and counterpoint, they create a sonic tableau where light and shadow meet.


Inspired by the ancient city illuminating East and West, Constantinople was conceived as a forum for cross-cultural musical encounters in 1998 in Montreal. A Filetta specialize in the traditional three-part polyphonic songs of the Mediterranean island of Corsica.


Clair-Obscur is presented in associate partnership with Constantinople, and is part of our 2019/20 season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performing arts in preserving culture, spurring social change, and celebrating diversity.
