Information on the activity

November 30, 2017 to December 2, 2017

Cinquième salle - Place des Arts Book

This all-new show is based on the work of André Gagnon, one of the most prolific and gifted of his generation of Québécois composers. André Gagnon has, without question, made a major contribution to instrumental music in Quebec. His talent has won him clear success with the public, the appreciation of his peers, and numerous Félix and Juno prizes. During his career, which has lasted more than 50 years, he has become one of the best-known of all Québécois musicians outside Quebec, particularly in Asia and in the United States.

The talented pianist and arranger Stéphane Aubin, backed up by a string ensemble, performs several works from Gagnon’s Neiges (a Double Platinum disc) as well as other works from the composer’s impressive repertoire. As writer-composer, performer, arranger, musical director, piano accompanist, and vocal coach for numerous artists, Stéphane Aubin is both accomplished and versatile. The vibrant actor and singer Kathleen Fortin joins the ensemble to perform extracts from both the opera Nelligan and the legendary show Leyrac chante Nelligan, and there will be several surprises. It’s sure to be a memorably enjoyable evening!
