"... a passionate, sensory homage to the music of Claude Debussy. Vagues et ombres by the Montrealers of collectif9 adds another beautiful milestone to the impressive career of a chamber orchestra unlike any other.”
- PAN M 360

Montreal string nonet collectif9 immerses the audience into a world of colours and textures with the music of Claude Debussy, Luna Pearl Woolf, and Tom Morrison, and the magical shadow decor of Mere Phantoms in Vagues et ombres (waves and shadows). The program includes original arrangements of works by Debussy including his iconic symphonic work, La Mer. Woolf's Contact addresses an urgent situation affecting Quebec's marine ecosystem, while Morrison's Sea Change expresses anxiety about the climate crisis.

collectif9

Known for their innovative programming and approach to chamber music, Juno-nominated Montreal string ensemble collectif9 performs “with an infectious energy and vigour that grabs an audience’s attention” (The WholeNote). Since their 2011 debut, collectif9 has performed numerous concerts across North America, Europe, and Asia. As performers of classical and contemporary music, the ensemble combines the power of an orchestra with the agility of a chamber ensemble. collectif9 operates on the premise that a change of context can influence communication and experience.

collectif9 is grateful to the arts councils of Montreal, Quebec, and Canada, and to FACTOR for their continued financial support, but also to their local and Canadian community, thanks to whom our governments ensure support for the arts, an essential investment for the quality of our lives.
