In collaboration with The Société de recherche et de diffusion de la musique Haitiënne, Crossing Borders presents “Concert Exodus” live in Montreal.
The Crossing Borders Music string quartet shares a program of music in response to Haiti’s current humanitarian crisis. The program includes Rudy Perrault’s “Exodus” string quartet which tells through music the story of Haitian immigrants and refugees, “Strings for Change” by Gifrants which was written in response to the events of Jan. 6, 2021, “Chrysallis devient papillon,” a metaphor for transformation by Sabrina CD Jean Louis, plus the premiere of “Ti pawol” by John Karly Fils Ménard, showing the incredible talents of Haiti’s next generation of musicians, and more!
The program marks ten years of sharing music by Haitian composers since Crossing Borders Music’s first-ever performance “Beyond the Headlines: Haiti in Music.”
