Christmas concert on December 22nd at Maison Mère – Le Charlevoisien

For the first time in a long time, Maison Mère Baie-Saint-Paul presents a concert of songs, traditional melodies, classical and baroque music and film music on December 22nd.

The 120-minute show is performed by the Ensemble Renouveau de Québec and Renée Gagnon, organist at Maison Mère.

The Ensemble Renouveau was founded in Quebec in 2017 and brings together five friends who met during their time at the conservatory and who share the same passion. The ensemble consists of two sopranos, Carole-Anne Roussel and Évelyne Larochelle, and an instrumental trio consisting of violinist Jessy Dubé, pianist Bruce Gaulin and cellist Simon Desbiens.

The ensemble’s goal is to democratize the work of classical musicians by making their repertoire more accessible. A wide range of well-known and/or newly arranged works will be presented that characterize her “Renewal” style.
