Violinist Marc Djokic Launches his Debut Album, Solo Seven
Violinist Marc Djokic launches Solo Seven, his debut album of Canadian music on September 22.
The official launch party takes place in the main foyer of Salle Bourgie at the Musée des beaux-arts in Montréal at 9:30 p.m.
The celebration follows Marc's concert with the MCO (McGill Chamber Orchestra). Composers featured on the album will be in attendance to say a few words about their works.
Marc began studying with his father, violinist Philippe Djokic, one of Canada’s great soloists, at an early age. He made his first orchestra debut at 14, and his scholarships and awards include a Talent Trust scholarship, an award from Canada Council’s Instrument Bank, and the Governor General’s Millennium Award. He’s been featured on Bravo! television series The Classical Now.
CAMMAC Music Centre named Marc as their first Artist-in-Residence for the 2017-2019 seasons. During his residency he’ll teach, perform, conduct research, and create a commissioned work to be premiered at CAMMAC.
Now based in Montreal, Marc will return to Halifax to appear in the Cecilia Concerts 30th anniversary season with a concert on February 24, 2019. (2019 is also a notable Talent Trust anniversary year — our 75th!)
