A virtual residency will first take place in November before the artists meet at the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris to finalise the compositions and design the band’s stage set. At the end of this residency, a concert will be organised on December 2, 2021, at the Canadian Cultural Centre to present the collaborative work and introduce the artists to a Parisian audience.

The concert will be promoted by the three institutions in partnership with the « Mission culturelle du Luxembourg à Paris ». Each will also invite professionals from their networks to present the final project.
