Nordic​ ​Voices
Northern Hemispheres

This Quebec-based string quartet consists of musicians from l’Orchestre Symphonique de Québec and the Violons du Roy. Borrowed from “Vibrances Festival” in Quebec City where the quartet is Ensemble-in-residence, this programme explores the sublime nordic voices and imaginative soundscapes of composers from Northern Canada and Scandinavia. The Chetwyn Farms alpacas love cold weather, so let’s see if they also like music from the North!

The Vibrances Quartet is a Quebec ensemble made up of violinists Véronique Vychytil and Benoit Cormier, violist Mary-Kathryn Stevens and cellist Blair Lofgren. Founded in 2019, the ensemble is in-residence at the Vibrances Festival, an annual chamber music festival in Quebec City, Canada. As part of an aesthetic focused on cohesion and homogeneity, the group stands out with a warm, polished sound, and refined stylistic approach. Ardent champions of new music, the Vibrances Quartet is committed to performing new works by upcoming and established Canadian and international composers. Featuring renowned musicians working with the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec and the Violons du Roy, the ensemble has a loyal following and brilliantly represents the musical vitality of the provincial capital.
