Events

CLASSICAL CONCERT FOLLOWED BY A PUBLIC READING, WINE AND CHEESE ($)
Friday August 9th, 7 pm at the municipal beach, down in the pine forest – 3304 8th Avenue

In case of rain, the activity will be held at école Marie-Anne – 4567 du Mont-Pontbriand St.

1. Classical Concert

Rosalie Lane Lépine, soprano, accompanied by Hakim Boudaa, pianist, will offer us a repertoire of love songs. The duo will present a potpourri of French melodies, Lieder, and Italian operatic airs that speak of love. You will hear excerpts from the greatest composers of past centuries, including Mozart, Rossini, Schumann, Strauss and Poulenc. Come and listen to Cherubino whisper sweet nothings into your ear, or to Queen Semiramide as she longs for her lover!

 

 

 

2. Humorous bilingual public reading with Faux-amis

Friday December 24th. The situation is critical. Saydie, a video game store coordinator from Montreal, is in Québec City. Her mission: to recover the figurines that Nicolas, a young indomitable sculptor, has held off on delivering, and to bring them to Toronto as quickly as possible. Travelling together from the Capitale-Nationale to the Queen’s City becomes the only possible compromise, but the holiday season prolongs the journey. Faux-Amis talks about social hierarchy, cultural and linguistic conflicts, the Canadian landscape and undoubtedly of budding love.

Get ready to laugh and to have a wonderful evening!

LA RÉCOLTE – MARKET
August 31st from 10 am to 2 pm in Town Hall parking lot

La Récolte is a market, overseen by the Rawdon Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Municipality of Rawdon. It’s goal is to offer citizens, growers, harvesters and small scale processors a local venue to promote the agro-food cultural heritage of the region; a friendly place where locals and visitors have access to a variety of quality foods, fresh or processed, in keeping with a respect for nature.
To ensure that this project develops smoothly and takes root, there will be 3 events in Rawdon during the summer of 2019, bringing together about 15 exhibitors. We will take this opportunity to gather valuable information and constructive feedback from the stallholders and customers, to open the market officially in 2020.
For more information please contact Josianne Proulx, coordinator at the Rawdon Chamber of Commerce by telephone at 450 834.2282 or by email at ccdrawdon@gmail.com.
