Dear friends of Francophonie en fête,
April 23 – 24
We regret to announce the cancellation and postponement of the virtual show by Grégory Charles which was scheduled for this evening, Saturday April 24 – 8:00 p.m., as part of the Bonjour Printemps festival.
We ask you to accept our apologies for this unfortunate setback, a case of Covid-19 detected in the entourage of the technical team forced us to postpone this representation, in accordance with the health measures in force.
The tickets purchased remain valid, however, and we will communicate with all holders within two weeks, the time to announce a new date for this show.
Grégory Charles and the organization of Francophonie en fête are eager to present this very innovative show to you very soon.

The Spectral show
April 23 – 24
Klô Pelgag and director Laurence “Baz” Morais have united to imagine the grand premiere of Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs, the concert. Unable to play the songs from her new album in front of an audience, Klô Pelgag will dive into everything that was lacking from the last year, everything that was taken away from her, in order to present a concert film filled with fantasy. This spectral concert is an epic surprise party, an unparalleled birthday bash, as well as the mise en abîme of a bucket list.
Klô Pelgag will take risks while accompanying viewers into a world of special effects and bizarre experiences. Braving the elements to present an immersive concert film, she will be joined by some fifteen musicians, making up the band Les grands-mères à broil, as well as several technicians/spectators. An uncompromising journey out of time – a must see!
Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs is an allegory that the songs speak to each other. Harmonically, verbatim. Totally embodied Phoenix pieces, forming a transcendent whole of coherence.
It is in all this space, this dark but cracked area of light jets, that Klô Pelgag’s creative ardor takes on its full meaning.
A show specially designed for Hello Spring /
Saturday April 24, 8:00 p.m. TO BE RESCHEDULED
Gregory Charles is known for his musical versatility; he will bring his audience in the most famous songs from the 60s to today.
Gregory Charles will use, for the first time in Canada, the CANVAS virtual hybrid cloud system, which involves interacting directly with the public.
Thus, Gregory Charles will connect with his audience and be able to interact and improvise with the thousand ticket holders live.
CANVAS Interactive Media Server is an all-in-one platform that leverages real-time 3D gaming technology and delivers ultra-high resolution interactive content.
Gregory Charles will be able to sense the presence of the crowd reacting, laughing to the interventions and the public will be able to make special requests. The result will be a communion between Gregory Charles and his audience as if he were in a performance hall.
Obviously with this technology, let’s bet that Gregory will have the idea of venturing into an immersive karaoke number in order to involve the public
