Montreal’s cutting-edge classical string band collectif9 has been gathering steam since its 2011 debut, attracting diverse audiences in varied spaces. Known for energized, innovative arrangements of classical repertoire, collectif9 employs lights, staging, and amplification more commonly seen at rock acts, and heralds a new age in genre-bending classical performance. The nine musicians of collectif9 combine the power of an orchestra with the crispness of a chamber ensemble.
