Orchestre de chambre Appassionata

Appassionata is a chamber orchestra conducted with passion for 12 years by its founder Daniel Myssyk. Composed of 20 musicians, the orchestra presents every year about fifteen high quality concerts in Québec and more recently in the United States. A specialist of the classical period, Appassionata is driven by the desire to bring music to the greatest number, while offering a fresh concert experience. Aware of the artistic and social role that can be played by an orchestra in its community, Appassionata supports the creation of Canadian compositions and the emergence of new talent through original artistic associations.  In addition, it produces each year a large youth series which is addressed to elementary students in disadvantaged areas. The $1 000 grant offered by the Music Promotion Fund will contribute to the realization of 36 workshops Pierre, le Loup et Moi! adressed to 1 600 students in disadvantaged areas.
