15 Jul Alain Trudel’s Summer Schedule 2014
After three successive, and successful, summer tours (two in Canada and one in India!) conducting the juno nominated National Youth Orchestra of Canada conductor Alain Trudel has decided to “try to take it easy” this summer…
He will spend the first two weeks of July conducting the National Art Center Orchestra, where he is already principal youth and family conductor. He will lead the orchestra for the Canada Day celebration concerts. He will then be back for three more concerts; with Branford Marsalis on the 5th (see review), Mozart 38th (Prague) Symphony on the 6th and a special concert with the works of Gustave Doré on the 12th at the National Art Galery.
Alain will then lead the Orchestre Métropolitain (Montréal) in Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony on the 16th before leading, as well as being the featured soloist in a program with the Brass of his “Orchestre Symphonique de Laval” on the 26th.
Part of August will be spent playing concerts and recording with the all-star Brass in Banff and also guest conducting at the Penisula Music Festival in the US.
Being asked about his 2014 summer schedule Trudel answered:
“It’s good to have break once in a while!”
