Last night more than 120 people turned out for a benefit concert for the Fondation Félix-Leclerc, of which Quebecor has been the major partner since 2005. Corneille, who recently signed with the Musicor label, put on a great show in the intimate show-bar setting of the famous barn at Espace Félix-Leclerc. Corneille and his band kept the audience dancing with some of his big hits as well as the Félix Leclerc song “Francis.”
Pierre Karl Péladeau, President and CEO of Quebecor, was in attendance and spoke of the importance Quebecor attaches to honouring the memory of the great historical and cultural figures who have shaped our society.
Over the years, a wide variety of artists have performed for the cause, including Alex Nevsky, Louis-Jean Cormier, Isabelle Boulay, Ariane Moffatt, Loco Locass, Jean-Pierre Ferland and Paul Piché.
