Nunavik and Northern Quebec

Nunavik and Northern Quebec

From September 9 to 19, 2018, Maestro Kent Nagano and musicians of the OSM will trace a path from the arctic down through Quebec’s interior toward the Côte-Nord. Beginning with performances in the Inuit villages of Kuujjuaq, Salluit and Kuujjuarapik, they will then travel southward for concerts in the Cree community of Oujé-Bougoumou and the Innu communities of Mashteuiatsh and Uashat mak Mani-Utenam.

“Finally, we look inward with a new work, as much a contemporary tribute to the sounds, people and traditions of our own land as Rite and Boléro were in their time. Chaakapesh by Ricketts and Highway is the fruit of a collaboration across five linguistic groups including Cree, Innu, Inuktitut, French and English, involving artists from the multiple cultures that call this land home.”
