Noon-Hour Concerts: MG3 - Montreal Guitar Trio
MG3 - Montreal Guitar Trio
Described by the CBC as "the hottest guitar ensemble in Canada", MG3 has quickly established itself as a force of rejuvenation and cross-pollenization between various musical forms. Marrying passionate virtuosity with a stealthy sense of humour, guitarists Glenn Lévesque, Marc Morin and Sébastien Dufour at once charmed the ears of seasoned critics and captured the hearts of their (now ever-expanding) audiences.
The Trio's eclectic, energetic music takes listeners on a journey through the world's many cultures — from the mysterious, exotic melodies of India to the hot rhythms of South America, Spain, the Balkans, the Orient and traditional Quebec and... Holywood.
Since it was founded at University of Montréal in 1998, the MG3 has given hundreds of concerts in North America and Europe, many of which have been recorded and broadcast by national networks such as CBC, Radio-France, BRAVO and Société Radio-Canada. Its 2002 concert, entitled The heat of the Day, and performed in Montreal, was nominated for Concert of the Year (Jazz and World Music) at the prestigious Prix Opus 2002, celebrating musical excellence in Quebec. This concert launched the Trio's second album, Garam Masala, which was also nominated for Disk of the Year (J&WM). Their 3rd CD has been released in Fall 2006.
