On

Sun­day July 3, 2011 at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., Choeur Flo­rilège will be per­form­ing at the Louis S. St. Lau­rent Na­tional His­toric Site. On stage, more than 30 mem­bers of the choir will be singing jazz, Que­be­cois folk­lore, songs from films and mu­si­cal show tunes. This ac­tiv­ity is pre­sented in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Louis S. St. Lau­rent Na­tional His­toric Site’s Com­pan­ions.

Founded in 1983, Choeur Flo­rilège brings to­gether cho­ral singers of all ages and of all back­grounds from the Sher­brooke re­gion and its sur­round­ing ar­eas. This large mu­si­cal fam­ily, con­ducted by choir­mas­ter Jean-Philippe Du­til, will per­form an adap­ta­tion of its an­nual con­cert. The choir’s songs will be ac­com­pa­nied by per­cus­sions, mu­si­cal in­stru­ments and will also sim­ply be sung a capella. Di­rected by Stéphane Baillargeon, the show is punc­tu­ated by dances, chore­ogra­phies and theatre, which ensures a highly en­ter­tain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence!

Vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to make the most of this spe­cial day by hav­ing a pic­nic in the St. Lau­rent fam­ily’s gar­den. The St. Lau­rent Puts on its Sun­day Best sum­mer pro­gram runs un­til Sun­day, Au­gust 28, 2011. All ac­tiv­i­ties take place un­der the tent in the St-Lau­rent fam­ily’s magnificent gar­den.
