Festival Accès Asie proudly opens its 21st edition and welcomes everyone to the Opening Cocktail at Café du Monument-National on Thursday May 5th, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The festival also celebrates the beginning of Asian Heritage Month across Canada.
This cocktail offers a glimpse into the Festival program while toasting its 21st edition. Musician Amir Amiri will play for this event the santur, a 72-string hammer dulcimer that lies at the heart of Persian classical music.
In addition, dance makes for a perfect companion on this occasion. Performer Tanveer Alam will present an excerpt from the QuébéAsia dance performance series, fourth edition. He will offer a glimpse into his talent for Kathak, a classical Indian dance. Finally, VJ and filmmaker, Florence So, will join us once again to brighten up the event with her image compositions.
Khosro Berahmandi, General Manager and Artistic Director, and his team at Festival Accès Asie are delighted to invite the public to the unveiling of this year’s program, unquestionably filled with rich and diverse artistic performances.

This year’s Festival will pay special tribute to the late composer Toru Takemitsu at Jeunesses Musicales du Canada on Friday, May 6th.
Specialists in Japanese music, Canadian guitarist Jérôme Ducharme and Japanese born flautist Yuki Isami, will commemorate the 20th anniversary of Takemitsu’s passing with a recital dedicated to his works. From 1974 until his final days, Takemitsu wrote many compositions for guitar, an instrument he was very passionate about.
As an epilogue for the original 60-minute program, Jérôme Ducharme has included a chamber music piece, as well as three flute solo pieces. Toward the Sea, a guitar and flute duet, will add the final touch to this splendid recital.

“…an entertaining way to introduce the whole family to great music [and] great theatre.” – Kathryn Greenway (The Gazette)
The arrival of an eccentric boarder turns a young boy’s life upside down: Ludwig van Beethoven has moved upstairs! At first young Christoph resents the new tenant but slowly comes to understand the genius of the man, the torment of his deafness and the beauty of his music. A heartfelt and mesmerizing tribute for all ages, "Beethoven Lives Upstairs" introduces audiences to some of the composer’s most memorable works.
Geordie is thrilled to bring back its theatrical adaptation of the award-winning Classical Kids’ story of the same title. Come revisit it or experience it as a family for the first time between April 29th and May 8th, 2016.
