The Sisters on the first two floors of Saint-Charles Pavilion at Maison Jésus-Marie were treated to a very special Halloween party. Arriving in costumes, the singers and musicians of the La Mosaïque Choir came to sing a number of works from Quebec’s repertoire.
The Sisters were pleased with the proximity of the singers and musicians since they could see and hear the performances better. The familiar repertoire of old songs from Quebec‘s culture, including "La Manic" and "Le ciel marie avec la mer", prompted many of the Sisters to hum along.
It was a sight to see the smiles on the faces and the sparkling eyes to realize just how much this extraordinary presentation was appreciated by the audience.
La Mosaïque Choir is directed by Paul-André Caron. For this occasion, he was accompanied on the electronic piano by Michel Laverdure. To make this Halloween magical, the members of the choir had agreed to "dress up".
Note that the choir is connected to the Centre d’action bénévole et communautaire La Mosaïque (La Mosaïque Volunteer and Community Center). This non-profit organization has as its goal to promote the independence and social integration of socially and financially disadvantaged people. The organization, founded in 1985, serves eight municipalities and offers a variety of services and activities.
