- Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, 31 rue des Jardins, Québec
The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity is proud to add two Westminster Concerts to its programming in February. Inspired, once again, by London’s St Martin-in-the-Fields Embassy & Cultural Institutes Series, the Cathedral offers concerts organized in partnership with diplomatic missions located in Quebec City and Ottawa. The Westminster Concerts is not an actual series, but rather timely events that are announced in due time.
Admission is free, but the Cathedral collects voluntary contributions at the end of the concerts.

Marseilles Windwood Quintet
Founded in 1987 by five soloists from the Marseilles Philharmonic Orchestra, the Marseilles Woodwind
Quintet was born out of the desire to share the extensive woodwind quintet repertoire and to highlight
this musical ensemble, which is often not well known to the general public. As a part of this initiative,
the five musicians created the Henri Tomasi International Woodwind Quintet Competition and the
International Woodwind Quintet Biennale, both of which are unique in the world. The eclecticism and
the radiance of these two cultural events make the Marseilles Woodwind Quintet a major promoter of
its art. The quintet is composed of Thomas Saulet (flute), Laurent Gignoux (oboe), Daniel
Paloyan (clarinet), Frédéric Baron (bassoon) and Didier Huot (French horn). For this concert, the
quintet will be accompanied by Jean-Christophe Maurice, bass-baritone, laureate of the
Fondation de France and the Charles & Christine Oulmont Musical Prize.
