In Wolfville, Quebec’s star Pierre Lapointe and celebrated classical musicians Philip Chiu and Cameron Crozman come together to present an exciting French-themed concert. In a “Musique de Chambre” treatment well-suited to our Performing Arts Series, they will perform songs from Lapointe’s recent recording, “La Science Du Coeur”, re-imagined here for piano, cello and voice, as well as a selection of works by iconic French composers such as Chopin, Poulenc and Debussy.
Pierre Lapointe is a chart topping leader of “La Nouvelle Chanson Française” who is known for his ground-breaking collaborations with established classical Artists. He actually made History in Quebec’s music industry when his career-defining record, “Dans la Forêt des Mal-Aimés” (“In the Forest of the Un-Loved”), became a triumphant concert with Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s Orchestre Métropolitain, in front of a Montreal audience of over 100,000.
Pierre Lapointe is not only a star in Quebec where his work has won him 18 “Prix Félix” (Québec’s Juno Awards) but also a critically acclaimed Artist in France where twice he received the “Grand Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros”, the most prestigious music prize in the francophone world. Clearly, there is a lineage from Brel to Gainsbourg to Lapointe.
“… a pianist-painter who turns every musical idea into a beautiful array of colors.” (La Presse), Philip Chiu is one of our country’s most sought-after chamber musician.
A musician of “stunning panache” (resmusica.fr), Cameron Crozman is being hailed as one of Canada’s foremost young cellists.

De la Grande Visite à Wolfville, le 20 Janvier, alors que la vedette Québécoise, Pierre Lapointe, et les musiciens classiques de renom, Philip Chiu et Cameron Crozman, se réunissent pour présenter un spectacle dont on se souviendra longtemps. Les francophones de la Nouvelle-Ecosse, ainsi que tous les fans de la chanson française, seront ravis par ce spectacle intimiste qui présentera les chansons du plus récent disque de Lapointe, La Science Du Cœur, ré-arrangées pour voix, piano et violoncelle, ainsi qu’une sélection de pièces des plus grands compositeurs français, tels Chopin, Poulenc et Debussy.
