Here are some suggestions for cultural activities to do this weekend.
Anyone who listened to the radio in the 1980s remembers Nuit Magique, the song that introduced Catherine Lara to Quebecers. However, even if the French performer-violinist sang the words of Luc Plamondon and forged close ties with several artists from here, she spaced out her visits. Her last presence on a Quebec stage dates back to 2011, if you are an admirer, then we can not strongly suggest that you do not miss your shot when she is in Montreal and Quebec, in formula one voice and two pianos, in weekend.
► Where: at the Maison symphonique de Montréal, October 29, and at the Palais Montcalm in Quebec City, October 30
