Description of the activity:
In honour of Montreal’s 375th and Canada’s 150th Anniversary, RufusWainwright presents Our Lady of the Harbour: a night celebrating the great tradition of Canadian artists. On August 16 & 17, 2017, Rufus Wainwright will sing an intimate evening of curated songs by Canadian musical icons Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Leonard Cohen, among others.
This special evening features the work of Canadian musicians beloved across generations, selected and sung by Wainwright with his own distinct interpretation, inside one of the most beautiful settings of old Montréal, Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours.
The concerts are to benefit the Kate McGarrigle Fund at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC) and Cedars Cancer Foundations. Kate herself started the fund in 2008 to fund research into sarcoma, the rare and underfunded cancer that took her life in 2010. In the past 9 years, the Fund has continued to give out valued research grants to candidates – helping to push the needle forward towards a cure.
