[two_third_column]…already a great cellist and performer, the 19-year-old prodigy succeeds in coaxing the finest nuances from his precious instrument and consistently demonstrates consummate skill and virtuosity. Claude Gingras, La Presse

A season-opener that is bound to take you by surprise… Our young conductor and cello prodigy, Stéphane Tétreault, will lead the Orchestra while simultaneously playing his Stradivarius, allowing you to discover a new side of his incredible talent.

Starring in Schubert’s magnificent Arpeggione Sonata, in an arrangement for Cello and String Orchestra by Yuli Turovsky, and in Haydn’s spectacular Divertimento, Stéphane will also share the stage with some of his virtuoso friends to perform concertos by the great Antonio Vivaldi. A stellar start to this new season!
