The Montreal Guitar Trio plays on Friday, Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Whittier Theatre. Tickets are $25 for adults, $12 for student reserved and student RUSH (at door only) $5. The band described by the CBC as the “hottest” guitar ensemble in Canada rocks their concerts with virtuosity, rigor, creativity, and an impressive stage presence. And for the Montreal Guitar Trio, humor and interacting with the public go hand in hand with their powerful musicianship.
The trio, composed of guitarists Sebastien Dufour, Glenn Levesque, and Marc Morin, has given hundreds of concerts in some of the most prestigious venues across North America, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. Winner of the 2011 Opus Award for “concert of the year” in the Jazz and World Music category, MG3 has released six albums, including Der Prinz on Analekta label.
