Performing Arts Series Concert
The Pacific University Performing Arts Series presents its second installment of the 2012-13 season: Le Vent Du Nord.
Since its inception in August 2002, Le Vent du Nord has been enjoying rocketing success. It has received several prestigious awards, including a Juno. The band is now one of the most-loved Quebec folk outfits throughout the world. Some of its songs come from traditional folk repertoire, while others are original compositions.
On stage, these four friends achieve peaks of happiness they eagerly share with any and all audiences. Le Vent du Nord knows how to deliver music that will move any crowd—to their feet and in their hearts!
Le Vent du Nord has crowds dancing to the sound of fiddle and hurdy-gurdy, using an original repertoire. Its music is both fresh and bound to tradition. One of the group’s strengths is its stage presence: energetic, dynamic, generous and in touch with the audience. Le Vent du Nord consists of four singers/multi-instrumentalists: Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers and Réjean Brunet, who joined the group in 2007. They sing originals and songs taken from the traditional repertoire, in their native French, to the delight of their audience—for whom it is more often than not a foreign language. Le Vent du Nord’s energy amazes audiences, and people keep asking for more.
Tickets available by calling the box office 503-352-2918 from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
