Ma­gog’s Benoit Bour­geois has been tour­ing Que­bec thanks to his abil­i­ties on the clar­inet. A mem­ber of the 219 Ma­gog Cadets, Benoit is also a mem­ber of the Musique des Cadets de la Re­gion de l’est (MCRE), a 45-piece or­ches­tra made up of the best of the 2,500 cadet mu­si­cians from the Army, Navy and Air Force cadet corps. The or­ches­tra will per­form about fifty con­certs through­out the sum­mer, in­clud­ing at such pop­u­lar events as the Fes­ti­val d’Ete de Que­bec and the Just for Laughs Fes­ti­val.

The Cadet pro­gram is free for all young peo­ple, aged 12 to 18, and aims to de­velop a spirit of civil re­spon­si­bil­ity and lead­er­ship qual­i­ties as well as pro­mote phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity. For more in­for­ma­tion visit
