On Saturday, October 4, 2014, the Lamèque International Baroque Music Festival is organizing a tribute evening (“roast”) for Mrs. Marie-Jeanne Chiasson-Noël. During the event, many guests will be joining us to pay tribute and honor this caring woman and her exceptional contribution to the community.
On the program: supper and testimonies. The evening will take place at the Mathieu-Duguay Hall in Lamèque, starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 each, and are available from all Board of Directors members, at the P’tit Mousse Restaurant, the Dépanneur Lamèque, the Pélagie Bookstore in Shippagan or by calling the Festival office at 344-3261.

The 2014 season of the Festival ended on a good note. Thank you to the public, musicians, volunteers and all our partners for ensuring a successful celebration of Baroque music again this year! See you next year, from July 23 - 25, 2015, as we celebrate our 40th anniversary!
Details of the next season's program will be announced in the Spring of 2015.
