Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà will be on tour in Quebec next Fall 2017
In the fall of 2017, 40 years after her first major Quebec tour, Angèle Dubeau will be undertaking her last series of concerts across the province. For this tour, entitled One last time, Angèle Dubeau will perform with her orchestra, La Pietà, and present a program made up of works loved and often requested by the public, works that have marked her career. The tour will begin in September and take her right across the province, winding up in December at the Maison symphonique de Montréal.
“As far back as I can remember, music has been part of my life. I’ve expressed myself with it, I’ve created with it, and still today and for a long time to come, I’ll nourish myself with it every day. This tour, One last time, is not a musical farewell, but rather a decision to change the way I live my life. After more than 40 years of touring, and still being in top shape, I’ve come to the conclusion that I can make my violin sing without the fatigue and stress of traveling and offering concerts on an almost daily basis, a luxury that comes with time – time, a truly rare commodity in my life… This tour is the opportunity to visit you one last time, evening after evening, town after town, pouring my heart into each show and saying a very emotional thank-you. Accompanied by the wonderful musicians of my orchestra, La Pietà, my hope is that you’ll be moved – dazzled, even – with all of us in perfect harmony.”
