Music students at Collège Notre-Dame present their end of the year show, Le Bistro, on June 2. Under the direction of Renée Dupuis, the concert will be held in the school gym at 100 Lévis Street in Sudbury. Curtain is at 6:30 p.m.
Featuring students from Grade 9 to Grade 12, Le Bistro was launched in 2006 and “finds its musical inspiration in blues, rock, country and folk, and obviously, French music.”
Students will present hits by Québec Brigitte Boisjoli, Martine St-Clair and Michel Pagliaro. The students will also honour their French roots with songs by Ben l’Oncle Soul, Ezra Muquoli and Michel Fugain. Le Bistro will also present a Russian folklore song translated in French. “Furthermore, the audience can expect a few translated hits from English-speaking artists such as Frankie Valli and Rihanna. The group of Grade 9 students will even present a medley of yéyé songs from the 1960s!”
Tickets can be purchased at Collège Notre-Dame’s main office or at the door prior to show time. Proceeds will support CND's music program. A sale of artwork is also part of the event, with proceeds supporting the CND Art Club.
Tickets are $5 each and snacks will be available for purchase during the intermission. There will also be a sale of works of art created by the school’s visual arts students.
