There will be something for everyone at the Coaticook Arts and Culture Pavilion (PACC) in 2018-2019. A mix of artists will hit the boards of Sisco Memorial Church. Mario Jean will start the ball on June 16, with the break-in of his new show.
The cuvée 2018-2019 is very varied in nature as well as in experience, which corresponds to the mission of the PACC. Marc-André Lacroix, general manager of the concert hall, is proud of his team’s programming and believes it will appeal to all types of audiences.
“One of the parts of our mandate is to invite renowned artists such as Daniel Boucher, François Massicotte, Kain, Luc de Larochelliere and Yoan, to offer fans of the region shows run, without having to move. We also make it a point to introduce new emerging artists to our audience, such as comedian Rosalie Vaillancourt, Soran and Valérie Carpentier. The programming is well balanced in this respect, “he explains.
In addition to offering a multitude of comedy performances as well as folk and pop shows, a tribute to AC / DC and a performance by Quebec rapper Rymz are added to the calendar. “It will satisfy those who want it to move! Exclaims Mr. Lacroix. “With the performance of Véronique Labbé and her tribute to Shania Twain, the parties will be the furthest. ”
PACC has also innovated its packages this year. “There are two promotions that allow fans to save a good amount of money: the offer of eight shows for $ 165, excluding comedy shows. We also offer four cafes-concerts for only $ 50. It does not cost much of the ticket! In both humor and music, we also offer a discovery show of an emerging artist at half price, with the purchase of a ticket for an established artist. It will allow fans to make some great discoveries, “explains co-host radio host Steve Roy, who is responsible for animation at the launch of the program.
Traditional discounts for students, Pavilion members and FADOQ members will still be in effect.
An important renewed partnership
On the occasion of the launch, the President of the Board of Directors of the Caisse des Verts-Sommets of Estrie, Nadine Groulx, announced the continuation of the financial support of Desjardins to the local broadcaster with an amount of $ 60,000 over three years.
“Alternative venues are an important link in the great chain of the cultural industry. They complement a part of the mandate held by traditional broadcasters, “she said. “At a time when the cultural offer is exploding and the public is segmenting, it is essential to support spaces of dissemination that can honor and serve all this diversity. We have the privilege, in Coaticook, to benefit from it, “concludes the president.
The entire program can be viewed on the Coaticook Arts and Culture Pavilion website or on the new digital billboard on Wellington Street.
