Conversations — André Cormier




As a celebration of Acadian poetry and contemporary music, and its coming together, Ensemble Sisyphe and guests will present the world premiere of André Cormier’s complete ten-volume work “Conversations”, a setting of the 1999 Governor General’s Award (French Language) poem by Herménégilde Chiasson. Quatuor Bozzini will perform Volumes 6 and 7 on August 13 and 14. This celebration in 2019 marks the twentieth anniversary of Chiasson’s poem, while Cormier’s setting of the poem was begun ten years ago in 2009. We gratefully acknowledge the Canada Council for the Arts and The New Brunswick Arts Board for their support.
