Known for pushing the boundaries in their music, Montreal based
classical string band, COLLECTIF9 has forged into
uncharted territory. Formed in 2011, COLLECTIF9 is a nine member
group of classically trained string players who aren’t shy
about shaking things up. Their bold performance style is heavily
influenced by popular music, combining a rock-inspired vitality
with audio-visual elements such as lights and amplification.
With the unusual chamber formation of a double string quartet
and added double bass, each musical selection is customized for
the group.
