FÉLIX IN THE PARKS

Symphonic Tribute to Félix Leclerc

Free concerts in four Gatineau parks

As we await the start of this 15th season, come and get a taste of OSG, in the great outdoors, in as much as the Outaouais’ pandemic restrictions allow.

On July 11 and 25, 2021, OSG will present four free 75-minute concerts in different Gatineau parks. This magnificent tribute to Quebec artist Félix Leclerc will feature a symphonic rendition of his most popular songs.

The first three concerts in this series will feature 40 OSG musicians on stage, along with narrator/historian Raymond Ouimet and contemporary dancer Geneviève Dong.

The final concert will start at 9 p.m. to allow for an extraordinary grand-scale projection of internationally renowned artist Christian Quesnel’s account of the life of Félix Leclerc through images. These images will be sublimated through the artistry of videographer Alexandre Berthier.

As befits the current sanitary and physical distancing measures, the number of spectators for each show will be limited to 250.

Tickets (free) can be obtained through Ville de Gatineau’s Réseau Ovation at the following links:
