Music, joy and smiles…

It is not every day that the spectators at a concert can find themselves in such close proximity to the musicians. This is what happened on October 30th during the concert with Lyse Archambault, violinist and Pierre-Paul Gamet, cellist. 

The two musicians played numerous pieces of music from a popular repertoire, on each of the three floors in the Saint-Charles Pavilion of Maison Jesus-Marie. The goal was simple: to awaken the interest of the Sisters and to encourage them to hum along. The intimate atmosphere and the enthusiasm created by presenting well-known music was rewarding for those who attended. 

Bringing the concert to an end, Lyse Archambault played a "reel" from yesteryear to the clapping of hands and the tapping of feel…what a sight to behold the broad smiles on all the faces!

Musicians at heart

A student of Sister Maryse Moisan for 13 years, Lyse Archambault has a baccalaureate in violin. A young retiree from a great career as a music teacher at the primary level, she is a member of Le Grand Orchestre de Châteauguay.

For his part, Pierre-Paul Gamet has been studying cello since he was five years old.  He is first cellist of the Montérégie Youth Orchestra, is a member of the Laprairie Choir, has a college degree in Pure Sciences and intends to study music at the University of Montreal during the next semester.
