Culture in the spotlight: Artistic Discoveries in Store this Fall in Saint Laurent
12 octobre 2018
Saint-Laurent, October 12, 2018 - Saint-Laurent residents took part in the launch of the cultural program at an event held at the Centre des loisirs on October 5. The 150 or so people in attendance took the opportunity of this fall tradition to learn more about what Saint-Laurent has in store for them over the coming months in terms of music, theatre, concerts, films and shows for toddlers.
On this occasion, Saint-Laurent Mayor Alan DeSousa made a point of recalling that culture was at the heart of the Saint-Laurent Administration's concerns. "Since the adoption of our Cultural Development Plan for 2018-2021, we have made a lot of progress. As early as 2017, our teams introduced free admission for spectators age 12 or under accompanied by an adult. Also, the libraries and even the Sports Complex hosted a number of performances during the summer season to reach a wider audience. These are just a few examples of the measures that have already been implemented," stated Mayor DeSousa.
The launch ended on a beautiful musical note, with a show featuring Élage Diouf. The Senegalese-born singer-composer-songwriter, accompanied by his group, got the audience up and dancing by playing pieces from his Melokáane album.
To obtain tickets and passes
Passes for free shows are available one month before the event at the Centre des loisirs, the Bibliothèque du Boisé or the Bibliothèque du Vieux-Saint-Laurent. Tickets for events with admission charges are sold at the Centre des loisirs and the Sports Complex.
