The Cardinal Léger Concert
On Sunday October 25 at 2 pm will be held the annual Cardinal Léger concert, presented by the LÉGER FOUNDATION and Radio-Classique, in collaboration with the Air Canada Foundation.
Marc Hervieux and Friends is a concert of intense emotion with three of Québec’s most talented voices: Marc Hervieux, tenor, Caroline Bleau, soprano, and Hugo Laporte, baritone. With a repertoire that draws from opera classics and popular songs alike, La Sinfonia de Lanaudière, conducted by Maestro Stéphane Laforest, has a festive concert in store with a wonderful surprise: a performance by young piano prodigy Daniel Clarke Bouchard.
