About Choros:
Choros grew out of the initiative of five musicians whose paths had previously crossed and who chose together to form a dynamic, out-of-the-ordinary ensemble on the cultural scene: a wind quintet. They perform throughout Quebec and contribute to the development of chamber music while democratizing classical repertoire and contemporary music.

Second weekend:

For the second weekend of Festival de Lanaudière “Notes d’automne,” the Orchestre symphonique des jeunes de Joliette (Joliette Youth Symphony Orchestra) will enliven public places with free outdoor musical performances.

Friday evening, September 25 and Saturday, September 26 between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Places to watch: Streets and parks of downtown Joliette and in Notre-Dame-des-Prairies.
