Les Rythmes d’été
Our open-air shows are now a tradition! Starting on Tuesday, July 9th, discover artists from all over at the Agora in Parc de la Maison-Valois at 7:30 PM.
Singin' Rendez-vous / The Ragtime Band (July 9)
Vintage vocal trio featuring Carolyne Legault, Mélissa Brosseau and Nathalie Maillard. As singing partners for seven years now, these three charming and lively singer-musicians offer a repertoire of timeless songs from the twenties, thirties and forties which are livened up and performed with a touch of humour and whimsy. As they transport the audience through the giddy romance of La vie en rose to the exotic rhythms of Josephine Baker, the trio delivers a carefully produced, refreshing show which the audience experiences through their meticulous blend of Swing, French chanson, Jazz, and rich vocal harmonies along with a surprising and eclectic array of musical instruments.
The singers are accompanied on stage by The Ragtime Band, a trio of skilled musicians featuring Julie Themens on piano, David Meunier-Roy on double bass and Normand Desrochers on drums and percussion.
Yoan (July 16)
Originally from Ferme-Neuve in the Upper Laurentians, Yoan captured the hearts of Quebeckers from the opening notes of “Live Forever” which he performed on the second season of La Voix, where he was crowned winner at the tender age of 18. His first album, a record-breaking success from the moment it was launched in March 2015, was certified Platinum just two weeks after it was released. In March 2018, Yoan released his long- awaited follow-up album entitled Depuis longtemps.
Carolyne Jomphe (July 23)
This charming and irresistible singer-songwriter is renowned for her warm, compelling voice and her powerful, moving, whimsical lyrics that audiences can easily relate to. Her music, a colourful blend of Country and Acadian sounds, not only reveals her origins but also her energy and love of life. A unique style with a strong sense of identity. A salute to the great French songs, a performance tribute to the great classics of the French culture where Carolyne interprets a feast of beautiful songs, offering the audience a moment of nostalgia sure to result in a strong urge to sing and dance.
Andréanne A. Malette (July 30)
Andréanne A. Malette was discovered on Star Académie in 2012. Thanks to her recent success on the radio, she is now set to present her new show featuring the catchy songs from her self-titled album. Known for her strong spirit, her authentic lyrics and her humour, the popular singer-songwriter invites you to spend a magical evening in her company.
Jérôme Charlebois and Yves Lambert (August 6)
Jérôme Charlebois and Yves Lambert are taking Quebec stages by storm and unleashing their inner fury. The two partners in crime deliver an uproarious show where the ambiance is nothing less than sizzling. The show offers a bit of everything, a mingling of pure Charlebois, accordion music and singalong songs.
Qw4rtz (August 13)
Four guys, four microphones and nothing more. Qw4rtz gave hundreds of performances of its last variety show which was referred to as a “high-wire act without a safety net” and “a cappella on steroids”. The group has captivated audiences across Quebec, Ontario, New-Brunswick, British Columbia and even St-Pierre-et-Miquelon! In this new show, Qw4rtz goes beyond that place where the human voice has ever vibrated. Serge Postigo is back as Stage Director with the firm intention of proving that four guys on one stage can take up more space than a dance troupe and 100 musicians.
