Celebrate International Francophonie Day with Jacques Arsenault at The Mack
Confederation Centre of the Arts is proud to present an evening of songs featuring P.E.I.’s own Jacques Arsenault who will be collaborating with well-known multi-instrumentalist Morgan Saulnier. This concert will be presented at The Mack, on March 20, at 7:30 p.m., and is a celebration of International Francophonie Day and part of Rendez-vous de la francophonie.
After living in Alberta and Ontario for many years, Arsenault and his family have recently moved back to their home province of P.E.I. Most of the program will be performed in French but Arsenault has selected a few songs in English.
“It will be a great privilege for me to be able to present a concert at The Mack,” he shares. “I have chosen songs that talk mostly about the sea, about travel, and the desire to travel. Given that the concert will take place on the first day of spring, I have also chosen a few songs to celebrate the arrival of the season.”
The Centre is thankful to the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Government of P.E.I., and the City of Charlottetown for their ongoing support. The Centre also acknowledges the support of Fédération culturelle de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard for this concert.
