CONCERTS IN PARC CHAMPLAIN
MitBravour Concerts is back with exciting news. According to the audience, one of the major success of the last series, on top of the high level of artistry, has been the ability to create events where performers and audience developed a sort of intimacy that you can rarely find in a regular concert hall. The combination of classical music with food and wine has been also welcomed with enthusiasm. For these reasons I decided to explore a new, even more intimate venue for the coming up series: my home !!. Home concerts are in fact becoming more and more popular, and they also offer the opportunity to the listeners to get to know the performers in a more personal way.
Seats will be limited to 40 listeners per concert, and when possible the concert will be presented twice (two evenings in a row) to allow a larger crowd to experience the event. There is no ticket sale, although a suggested donation at the door of 30$ per person would be welcome, and it will help to offer a contribution to the musicians as well as covering the costs of food and wine offered at each concert. A reservation will be mandatory in order to attend, and my hope is that you'll be able to participate if you reserve your own spot since seats are very limited and we would like to see less empty seats as possible! In case of a cancellation a notice would be welcomed so that people in the waiting list might be contacted. You'll be able to keep track of seats availability on this page, and if you wish to reserve your spot please write an e.mail to [email protected] mentioning which concert you would like to attend.
Concerts will take place at 30 Rue De Saint-Malo, Gatineau (Aylmer), J9J 1J7, in the beautiful neighborhood of Parc Champlain. Location is not far from downtown Ottawa, and there is plenty of parking on the street. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the concert.
I really look forward to see you again very soon, for what it looks like another set of exciting concerts!
