An absolutely genius idea.”

Following the undeniable success of Les Dames du Lac in the summer of 2020, two concerts on water that were magical, a strong demand has built up to repeat the event in 2021. Therefore, again in the majestic setting of Mont-Tremblant, two unforgettable concerts of Les Dames du Lac will be presented by violinist Angèle Dubeau accompanied by the 9 musicians of La Pietà performing a new musical program. These events, imagined by Angèle Dubeau in the context of the pandemic, will allow spectators to listen to high-quality musical performances aboard their own watercraft (canoe, kayak, paddleboard, etc.) while respecting social distancing measures.

The free concerts will take place on:

  • Saturday July 24 at Lac Tremblant at 4 p.m. The stage will be situated in front of the Hotel Quintessence dock and the access to the lake will be from the Parc Plage.
  • Sunday July 25 at Lac Mercier at 4 p.m. The stage will be situated in front of the municipal beach and the access to the lake will be from the boat ramp at the municipal beach.

These free concerts are made possible thanks to the generous support of three loyal partners, Ville de Mont-Tremblant, SODEC and Québecor. We also wish to thank the Lac Tremblant and Lac Mercier Associations as well as the Hotel Quintessence, the Centre Nautique Pierre Plouffe-Tremblant and Brian Arnott for their exceptional collaboration.

It is important to know that it will only be possible to attend the concerts from a personal watercraft and that it will not be possible to enjoy the concerts from the shore. It is also important to note that only residents along the shores of Lac Mercier and Lac Tremblant will be entitled to the use of motorboats.

Depending on the evolution of the pandemic context, the organizers reserve the right to restrict the number of watercrafts allowed on the lakes. As well, all watercrafts must have been washed beforehand. We urge the public to respect the social distancing guidelines issued by the government. We ask anyone with COVID-19 symptoms to not to attend these concerts.
