A dozen artists took to the stage Thursday evening at the Quebecor Amphitheater at Cité de l'énergie, in Shawinigan, as part of the show “À plein voiles”.
This is the first show presented at the Cité de l'Énergie since the start of the pandemic.
Some 200 spectators were gathered for this return on stage. The turntable of the amphitheater was used, as well as the natural setting of Melville Island, to offer various paintings to the public.
The show “A Full Sails” highlights different musical styles and artists from the Mauricie region. Rémi-Pierre Paquin, Fred Pellerin, Sylvain Cossette, Cindy Bédard, Steve Hill, Valérie Carpentier and Jacques Newashish were part of this great celebration.
“I started filming again and did radio, but being on a stage was quite a 'feeling'. To receive the reaction of the world and to find it, it felt good. We never got that gang together. It was really fun to be all together on the stage, ”commented actor Rémi-Pierre Paquin.
The mayor of Shawinigan, Michel Angers, attended the performance. “You know that I am a proud Shawinigan, but yesterday I was a proud Mauritian, to see all this talent gathered on the same stage,” he said.
The show “A Full Sails” will be broadcast on the Cité de l'Énergie Facebook page on Thursday, September 24 at 7 pm.
