Gilles Bélanger
L’homme rapaillé en chansons (songs)

October 30, 2 p.m.
Centre culturel de Verdun
In collaboration with Louis-Jean Cormier, Gilles Bélanger has set the great Gaston Miron’s poetry to music. The impact of the 12 hommes rapaillés albums is already well-known. Directed by actor Marc Béland, this show now gives Bélanger a chance to perform the songs himself. And guitarist Yves Savard is part of the scene. Lots of emotions in store!

Alcaz (songs)
November 13, 2 p.m.
Centre communautaire Elgar
Two voices, two guitars and readymade happiness to be sung!
Frivolous, serious, soft, humoristic, but always appealing, this repertoire is somewhat of a gift of love to the audience, offered by the heartwarming duo of Jean-Yves Léviaux and Viviane Cayol.

QAT, Ensemble à géométrie variable
«1938» (20th Century music)

November 27, 2 p.m.
Centre culturel de Verdun
Vienna, 1938. Off-stage, the voiceover of a Jewish critic evokes events occurring that year and various composers working on their music at the time: Kurt Weills's September Song, Hindemith's Quartet, Bartok's Contrasts, Cole Porter and Artie Shaw’s jazz.

Presented by the Conseil des arts de Montréal en tournée and the Verdun Borough

Transmission Ensemble
Trans - époque (Classical music)
February 5, 2 p.m.

Les Moonlight Girls
Moonlight Café (swing vocal trio)

February 26, 2 p.m.

The French and English swing répertoire shines throughout this concert featuring the voices of three enthusiastic, virtuoso singers. Surf to your heart’s delight on memories of the Andrews Sisters, while enjoying the Moonlight Girls’ original approach. A sweet, charming and timeless show.

Platero et moi
Les voyageurs immobiles (Music Theatre)

Sunday, March 25, 2 p.m.
Centre culturel de Verdun
A look at the beauty of things, friendship and loss. Inspired by the work of Juan Ramon Jiménez, this show takes us somewhere halfway between theatre, music and poetry. A guitarist and narrator tell us the story of a poet accompanied by his mule, observing the daily lives of human beings, their place in this world and their perception of nature.
