Project Description

We are proud to have, in this 26th edition, Marco Calliari as Montreal’s Italian Week’s spokesperson!

After a career spanning 30 years, Marco Calliari’s new show takes his audience on a great journey that recounts his impressive artistic career and strong influences. The Calliari Bang! Bang! show proposes an explosive cocktail of pieces in which the music of Italy and heavy metal mix discreetly but skillfully. With several new compositions and revisions of his great classics, Marco succeeds once again in perfectly mixing brass and strings. His new cohort of musicians includes Julie Houle on tuba, Luzio Altobelli on accordion, Demetrio Maso on drums, Tim S. Savard on trumpet, trombone, harmonica, violin, mandolin and piano, Phil Girard on guitar, Jean-Sebastien Leblanc on clarinet, and Marie-Anne Arseneault on bass. Through each detail of the staging, this rich and surprising blend allows us to discover Marco Calliari’s story and influences.
