Trio Tangere is an exciting ensemble with the striking edge of dual guitars and the melodic sounds of the violin.

The Trio continues to bring a variety of musical styles to the stage, mixing classical with contemporary world works. An audience favourite, Trio Tangere has performed at Canadian music festivals and concert series. Coming up in 2024 the Trio will be touring across BC and Alberta in October. The three members, Marc Djokic, violin, Jérôme Ducharme and Louis Trépanier, guitars, were already established virtuosi when they started performing together; from the first notes of the first rehearsal, they knew they had a magical simpatico in their playing.

This ensemble performs exciting repertoire from the select body of works already in existence for this instrument grouping, as well as new commissions and transcriptions. They have commissioned and debuted work from contemporary Canadian composers such as Matthias Maute, Richard Mascall and Christine Donkin.

Past concerts include performances and masterclasses at Cecilia Concerts in Halifax, Cambrian College in Sudbury, Music & Beyond festival in Ottawa, and at the historic Heliconian Hall in Toronto. Trio Tangere has performed at the Chapelle Historique du Bon-Pasteur in Montreal, as part of the Acces Culture concert series. In 2018 they embarked on their first US tour, performing in cities in Kentucky. The Trio has filmed four music videos in unique Canadian locations, produced by the classical video channel Mecenat Musica Noncerto.
