Past Projects

 

BOWFIRE is a Canadian musical group from Ontario, Canada featuring multiple violins, established in June 2000 by violinist and composer Lenny Solomon. They perform an eclectic mix of classical music, jazz, bluegrass music, celtic music, rock music, and world music.’ In 2015, Marc joined Bowfire as they performed with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and then as the group toured the United States later that year.

‘Formed in June 2000, Bowfire made its debut performance the following month at Expo 2000 in Hannover, Germany. Audience response was wildly enthusiastic, and the group was subsequently invited to perform on the Governor-General’s Awards telecast. The ensemble made its American debut in a series of performances during the summer of 2001 in New York City, and embarked on their first U.S. tour during the 2002-2003 season. In December 2003 Bowfire made its Asian debut with performances in Taiwan. Bowfire has enjoyed many highly successful touring seasons since, including hundreds of concerts in the United States.’

L’ENSEMBLE MOREPHEUS est un projet ayant été développé durant l’été 2009 par le violoniste Marc Djokic, l’altiste Frédéric Lambert et la violoncelliste Chloé Dominguez. À la base, l’ensemble désirait explorer exclusivement le repertoire de trio à cordes. À peine quelques mois après leurs premiers concerts, l’ensemble a eu la chance de collaborer avec le pianiste Paul Stewart. Cette rencontre fût une magnifique surprise. C’est ainsi que l’Ensemble Morpheus est composé de quatre musiciens voulant ainsi offrir au public diverses pieces de formation différentes (solo, duo, trio et quatuor avec piano). L’Ensemble Morpheus était le quatuor-en-résidence à la Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur à Montreal entre 2010 – 2013.
