“Words of frost and strong winds. Read her, listen to her: you will come away strengthened by her deliberate fragility. Like me, you’ll feel more keenly the sound of life.” So says Bruno Doucey of the poetry of Hélène Dorion. Throughout the concert, the writer will read excerpts from her book of poems Comme résonne la vie, alternating or superimposed with music. (In French only)

This concert will also be presented on Thursday, March 19, 2020, at 2 p.m. at Salle Raoul-Jobin, Palais Montcalm - Maison de la musique in Quebec City.
