The new Gilles Vigneault theatre is now officially open.  The inauguration event on January 18th was a magnificent and Gilles Vigneault himself was present at this event.  For the first time, a full Symphonic Orchestra on stage in St. Jerome, in a new hall with great acoustics! The Symphonic Orchestra of Laval, with the charismatic conductor Alain Trudel at the podium, played a well performed, interesting, and enjoyable program.  To conclude the evening, Gilles Vigneault’s well known song “Les amours, les travaux” was performed by the orchestra with the addition of a choir of fifty students from Academie Lafontaine.  It was beautiful, and left a taste for more!  Now that St. Jerome has such a beautiful hall, we can hope to have more Orchestra concerts, theatre and dance performances.
