Pacifique en chanson presentation

Pacifique en chanson is a unique springboard giving opportunities to British-Columbian and Yukon artists to make their first step into the world of Francophone popular music. The following step will be for two candidates to participate in Chant’Ouest, the inter-provincial (Alberta, British-Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan) music contest: the two winners of Chant’Ouest getting access to the prestigious International song contest of Granby. For many years, Pacifique en chanson has been contributing to the local blooming of the francophone culture.
