2009 les Rencontres qui chantent in Vancouver: the program


In 2009, after two very successful runs, the Alliance nationale de l’industrie musicale (ANIM) and the Festival en chanson de Petite-Vallée join forces with the Francophone Cultural Centre of Vancouver and the Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad, to present Les rencontres qui chantent in Western Canada.

This project targets emerging artists starting a career in Francophone Canadian music. For a third year in a row, a group of 12 artists coming from different Canadian provinces, have been selected by ANIM and the Festival en chanson de Petite-Vallée in the Gaspé peninsula, where they participated in a creative residency in June 2008.

Two artists from British Columbia will take part of the selection. Beginning on March 7th 2009 the group will travel to Vancouver to receive artistic mentorship with professionnal as Marc Chabot for writing, Marc Pérusse for musical arrangement and Isabelle Longnus for stage presence. that work will culminate in a show that will be presented on Sunday, March, 15 at the Shadbolt Centre For the arts in Burnaby at 7:30pm. Marc Pérusse is the musical director and Isabelle Longnus is the executive director of this show. It will be broadcast on the francophone stations of Radio-Canada throughout the country at a date that remains to be determined.

The arrival of the project Les rencontres qui chantent in Western Canada will crown three years of this initiative in creating and supporting the careers of up and coming artists in francophone Canadian music.

The project initially took shape in 2006, resulting in the presentation of a show in Moncton during the Francofête in Acadia. The second incarnation of the project took place in January, 2008, when it was Ontario’s turn to welcome the artists as the show was presented during the Contact ontarois at the War Museum in Ottawa.
