18 ans !

A word from the artistic director

I wish you the warmest of welcomes to the 18th summer of Concerts aux Îles du Bic. Whether this is a first-time discovery, or you are a returning visitor, our hope is that these ephemeral moments of musical beauty will charm you and stay with you as warm memories.  This season, something for everyone : the wonderful voices of Alexandre Sylvestre and Geneviève Levesque in the company of the flamboyant guitar orchestra Forestare, the return of our Festival Choir in Fauré’s glorious Requiem, the passion of Chopin and the elegant emotion of Ravel as interpreted by Maxim Bernard at the piano, a splendid quintet of winds led by Mathieu Lussier and Louis-Philippe Marsolais, in all more than 65 musicians reunited here in our region for our pleasure.

Family concerts, our late night cabaret, or the musical pique-nique in the magnificent Parc national du Bic that wraps up the festival ; no matter your interest, this year’s amazing roster of artists will surprise and delight. Come discover the shared pleasure that is Concerts aux Îles du Bic. Have a great festival !


James Darling, artistic director
