MG3 Friday Evening Concert
Friday, October 21, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.
Convocation Hall (UH 213)
The three guitarists MARC MORIN, SÉBASTIEN DUFOUR and GLENN LÉVESQUE form MG3 (Montreal Guitare Trio).The program of their concert marries passionate virtuosity with a stealthy sense of humour and includes an interesting mix of rearranged classical pieces, well known covers adapted for three guitars, some original compositions, jazz numbers and world music discoveries. They occasionally add their voices to the guitars when performing great popular classics by The Beatles, Radiohead or Jazz master Luis Bonfi. For more than 15 years, the trio’s virtuosity, rigor, creativity, and dynamic stage presence — they are noted for the wit and warmth of their interactions with audiences — have been winning applause around the world. Winner of the 2011 Opus Award for “concert of the year” in the Jazz / World Music category, the trio have given hundreds of concerts in prestigious venues in North America, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia, including the BB King Blues Club in New York, the Rundetårnet in Copenhagen, and the legendary Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
MG3 has released six albums. Der Prinz, under the Analekta label, has been launched in February 2014, during the 15th edition of the Montréal en lumière Festival.
