A summer of music for conductor Nicolas Ellis!
Agence Station Bleue is pleased to announce today the upcoming projects of conductor Nicolas Ellis on stage. The summer season will provide a rich series of concerts for the young maestro, led by the many successes he has been enjoying since his 2013 debut with his own Orchestre de l’Agora.
Nicolas Ellis started his Summer of music making at the Domaine Forget International Festival on June 26. Under his direction, soprano Karina Gauvin and Les Violons du Roy performed works by Mozart, Gluck and Haydn to open this year’s edition. On July 3rd, at the invitation of the Lachine Music Festival, he conducted the Orchestre de l’Agora in Malher’s fourth symphony (arr. Klaus Simon) alongside soprano Vanessa Croome.
