    “It is a sequence of hits from the beginning to the end,” she said. The artists will emphasize important passages of the FEQ, but they will also perform their own hits. We can expect them to dance and move. This will be very, very festive, but also with some moments touching. It is in our mandate to create improbable encounters. “

    For the occasion, the band Belle and Bum will be enhanced by a choir of three people.

    The show will be recorded for broadcast on the 16th of September next, at 21 h, at Télé-Québec. This brings a lot of challenges for the production team.

    “It is full of challenges, but not in terms of content,” explains Fanny St-Amand. This is more for logistics. In tv, it is accustomed to everything to be prepared. It is accustomed to work each issue with the lighting accurate. There, we will have lighting, but we have not been able to see it. This will be the day, when we will repeat. “

    “And there will be very little time to install it and repeat the show, which includes a lot of artists, so a lot of inputs and outputs “, she says.

    But she says that the show has been designed “first and foremost” for the people on site. “On tv, it actually breaks to make the change instrumentation. Here, there’s never going to stop the show. You want to keep the energy and put on a show for the spectators. “

    15 years of Belle et Bum

    “This is never acquired, supports Normand Brathwaite. When we arrived at the 13th season, Melissa said that we should start doing live shows, to be put to the challenge. You don’t have the right to sit on your laurels. It has added a lot to the show, we found ourselves in situations of danger. “

    The show was held Sunday evening at the parc de la Francophonie at 20: 30. It will be released on September 16, at Télé-Québec.
