Les Éléments Christmas concert

Les Éléments is an exciting new addition to the world of cello quartets. The group is an offshoot of the famous cello octet Élément 8, which is proud to be an ensemble-in-residence with the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec. Originally from beautiful Quebec City, Élément 8 has been enchanting audiences across the province since 2017. Our mission goes beyond simply providing an enriching musical experience. We are equally committed to igniting a passion for music in the hearts of the younger generation. The cello quartet Les Éléments was born out of the desire to create stronger ties with Quebec City’s vibrant community throughout our musical journey.
