Vancouver Francophone Coup de Coeur 2006

 
     
 

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Coup de coeur francophone and its 12th season in Vancouver (Canada), Le Centre invites you to discover a young singer whose star is on the rise and to revisit some of the great names of French music with two talented Francophone performers!

Does the name of Joe Dassin make you feel like humming « Les ChampsÉlysées » or « L’Eté Indien »? Then you will be glad to hear the renditions of these favourites sung by Raphaël Torr, a singer who has adopted Quebec as his home. The show « In Praise of Joe Dassin » has been such a great hit that we decided to bring it to Vancouver. Raphaël Torr first appeared on stage at the age of 15 and since then, he has given over 4000 concerts.

Saturday, November 4th at 8 p.m.
At Studio 16
1551 West 7th Avenue
Member $ 15, non-member $ 20

Isabelle Longnus, writer, composer and performer, will sing the praises of Barbara, with her rendition of the diva’s most beautiful songs.
Isabelle Longnus is a major figure in the Francophone cultural life of Western Canada, where she has produced films, documentaries and televised series. She has also received many awards in the performing arts and film.
Isabelle Longnus will bring the music of Barbara to life for our listening pleasure.

Wilfred Le Bouthillier will come to Vancouver to perform his best loved songs for students in the Francophone school system.
Wilfred grew up in a small village in the province of New Brunswick. Although it appeared most likely he would become a fisherman, his destiny brought him to the stage and he carried off first prize at Star Académie in 2003. From there, his rise to fame has been phenomenal, and his first album is now a platinum recording.
