The MRC Pontiac along with partners Pontiac Community Radio (CHIP 101.9) and Témiscaming’s Dottori Hall are pleased to announce the first season of a new series of shows in the Pontiac.
“It’s proof that with a little imagination and willpower we can achieve things that might seem out of reach for a small community. Through partnerships we have found the means to present professional calibre performances locally and, above all, give our youth the chance to see and hear Quebec artists live” says MRC Pontiac Jane Toller.
“We applaud the MRC Pontiac’s initiative and the work done by their staff. For CHIP 101.9 it’s a way to promote Quebec artists to our audience and help fulfill our role as supporters of francophone talent”, said CHIP 101.9 president, Diane Grenier.
For the winter-spring season 2018, two shows are planned:
LES GRANDES CRUES: Ève Côté and Marie-Lyne Joncas both graduated from the École nationale de l’humour in 2014. Their lively humour, marked by a sense of repartee and an original approach to portraying society, will appeal to a wide audience.
Details: February 1, 2018, Sieur-de-Coulonge Secondary School auditorium (150, Chemin de la Chute, Mansfield), 7 pm. Advance tickets $26 and $31 at the door.
AMÉLIE HALL: This young singer-songwriter has shared the stage with a number of big name performers including Patrick Norman and Renée Martel. Amélie was named Discovery of the Year at the 2016 Gala Country Awards. In 2017, she released her second album, “Cultiver l’amour”.
Details: April 12, 2018, Sieur-de-Coulonge Secondary School auditorium. Students $15, adults $25.
Tickets are now on sale at the CHIP 101.9 office (138, rue Principale, Fort-Coulonge) and at the MRC Pontiac (602 Hwy. 301 North, Campbell’s Bay).
This arts programming is the result of an agreement signed between the MRC Pontiac, Témiscaming’s Dottori Hall and Pontiac Community Radio (CHIP 101.9). The goal of this partnership is to provide Pontiac residents with the opportunity to enjoy professional calibre performances locally. Another series of shows has already been confirmed for fall 2018.
