Jacques Andre DuPont took the stage to a crowd of Verdunites and visitors to open up the 1st edition of a satellite Jazz Festival site in Verdun.
Verdun won over 16 other projects, mostly because its borough residents fully support events like these.
Verdun is getting a lot of attention in the news because of its newly opened beach and now The Festival International de Jazz de Verdun. #jazzverdun
Sylvie Demers (TD Bank) also spoke highly of the Verdun residents and their willingness to support these initiatives.
This site is 100% free and has exclusive artists that will only perform at this location.
If you find the downtown location a little claustrophobic, check out the Verdun site, steps away from the De L’Église Metro.
Véronique Tremblay (Borough Councillor), Sylvie Demers (TD Bank), Eric Meunier (Loto Québec) & Jacques-André Dupont (CEO of the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal) took to the stage to hit the gong to officialy open the Verdun Festival Site.
Susie Arioli started the show with her band.
