45th Anniversary Show

In 1974, a musical adventure was launched by Gilles Julien and his wife Françoise Delisle-Julien. Originally a religious choir, the group has evolved towards a folk repertoire complimented by choreographic notes. What a path Les Chansonniers have travelled, sharing hundreds of shows and scenes with big names such as Édith Butler, Gilles Vigneault, Renée Claude, Robert Paquette and Paul Demers. Through its music the Troupe has spread the French culture, in the Ottawa area, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec. In 2006, François Julien assumed the role of musical director. His son, Christian, starts conducting some of his own arrangements in 2017. Josée Chabot, alto section leader, joins the musical direction team in 2018. Les Chansonniers d’Ottawa will once again return to the Shenkman Arts Centre where the walls will resonate with their passion and energy to celebrate 45 years of song and dance creations under the direction and inspiration of Gilles, François, Christian and Josée and under the choreographic direction of Monique Cuierrier assisted by Claire McArdle. This is a rendez-vous you will want to attend!
