To highlight the 25th anniversary of the ensemble La Pietà, Ms. Christine St-Pierre, Official Opposition Critic for Culture and Communications, will present the National Assembly medal to its founder, Ms. Angèle Dubeau, on Tuesday, May 3.
In 1997, the internationally renowned violinist founded this string ensemble composed exclusively of women who are among the best musicians in Canada. Since then, in addition to recording numerous albums, La Pietà has performed on the most important stages in Asia, Europe, South America and the United States, at a rate of 50 to 60 concerts per year.
The Liberal MNA for Acadia will also take the opportunity to present a motion in the Blue Room of the National Assembly to recognize Ms. Dubeau’s brilliant career and her tireless efforts to make classical music accessible to a wide audience and to introduce contemporary composers.
“Angèle Dubeau has made a remarkable contribution to the democratization of classical music and, with her string ensemble La Pietà, she has made Quebec known throughout the world. I am very pleased to offer her this well-deserved recognition today. – Christine St-Pierre – Official Opposition critic for culture and communications.
