Centenary lunch cruise on the CNM Évolution

The sale of tickets for the centenary lunch cruise is over. Thank you for your generosity!

The Concerts aux Îles du Bic chamber music festival joins the Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père to offer you a music-filled lunch cruise to the site of the wreck of the Empress of Ireland.

Liette Remon, a violinist from the Gaspé, happily moves back and forth among traditional, renaissance, medieval, and contemporary musical styles. With her unusual instruments, on this cruise she explores traditional Quebec, Irish, and European airs.

A sumptuous lunchbox redolent with regional products will make for a unique meal.

After dinner, two divers will speak about the excavations on the site, and a bouquet of flowers will be thrown into the water in tribute to the victims.
