Boudreau’s ‘Noel Lounge’ in Unity

Dec 04, 2012
The Lina Boudreau Trio

Unity — Skye Theatre will bring the Lina Boudreau Trio to Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., Thursday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15.

Boudreau returns to Unity with her Christmas show, “Noel Lounge,” performed in both French and English. Boudreau is a native of Memramcook, a quaint little French village in New Brunswick, considered the cradle of New Acadia. As a singer/songwriter, Boudreau is distinguished not only by the words she sings but also by the tone of her beautiful voice, making her one of the most popular singers of Acadian, Quebecois and First Nations songs.

Boudreau will soon release her fifth album. She has had the privilege of participating in several major international events such as the G7 and various summits of la Francophonie, which allowed her to perform in Singapore, Saudi Arabia and Guinea. She also performed in Morocco, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali and Tanzania, at the invitation of the Ambassador of Canada.

Over the years, Boudreau has received much recognition; one of the most memorable moments of her singing career was when she was officially invited to sing for Céline Dion and René Angélil at their son René-Charles’s highly publicized baptism.

For reservations, call 948-7469. A limited number of free tickets are available for Unity College students, faculty and staff.
