Montreal’s cutting-edge classical string band collectif9 has been gathering steam since its 2011 debut, attracting diverse audiences in varied spaces. Known for energized, innovative arrangements of classical repertoire, collectif9 employs lights, staging, and amplification more commonly seen at rock acts, and heralds a new age in genre-bending classical performance. Since summer 2015, collectif9 has performed over 60 concerts and showcases in Ontario, Québec, New Brunswick, New York, and China. The next two seasons will see the group performing in Asia, Europe, the United States, and Canada’s west coast, as well as in Quebec and Ontario.
