OTTAWA GUITAR TRIO
From the Big Screen to the Concert Hall
Ottawa based Classical Guitar Ensemble
CONCERT DATES: 2019-2020 SEASON
Thanks to cbc.ca for featuring us and our new Star Wars video! Recorded in Toronto by the amazing Drew Henderson and arranged by our very own Nathan Bredeson.
Composed of Nathan Bredeson, Alex Bougie and François Lacelle, The Ottawa Guitar Trio has made it their mission to highlight the accessibility and reliability of classical music to modern audiences. The ensemble explores the classical guitar’s unique dynamic and textural palette to bring to life a repertoire of dynamic movie soundtracks, nostalgic video game scores, timeless classical repertoire, as well as original music for the classical guitar.
Each of them prolific arrangers, the trio thrives in challenging themselves to authentically adapt a wide array of repertoire, be it originally for solo piano, chamber music, electronic compilations, or orchestral compositions. They also pride themselves in showcasing pieces by local as well as up-and-coming composers. Moreover, the ensemble looks forward to further contributing to the available repertoire for the guitar trio format in general through commissions and composition.
Making their debut in the summer of 2018, the trio has in their first season alone taken part in concert series for the Ottawa Guitar Society, Trinity Anglican Church, Saint Luke’s Anglican Church of Canada, as well as the Chamber Pints series presented by Ottawa’s reputed Chamberfest.
