QUASAR put a strong emphasis on the collaboration between interpreters and composers. They have commissioned many works to composers from Québec and Canada. They have played in concerts and at festivals throughout Canada, in Montreal, Jonquiere, Ottawa, and Calgary and their peformances are recorded regularly for broadcast by Radio-Canada.
