Future Stars’ Grand Premiere
The benefit event
For the past ten years, the Future Stars’ Grande Premiere has presented a unique show that raises funds to support outreach and education programs which create hundreds of meetings every year between diverse audiences and artists at Place des Arts. This event also allows the Fondation to introduce businesspeople, philanthropists, and art lovers to exceptionally talented young artists.
Community Outreach: Lighting a spark
Arts and culture are essential for our development and fulfillment as individuals, as a community and as a society. This is why, every year, more than 500 teenagers from less privileged backgrounds and newcomers are invited to attend the show free of charge. Since this initiative was created, over 2,000 people have taken part in this unique evening. For many of them, this event is a first immersion in the cultural world of the performing arts in Quebec.
