Classics from the French and English repertoire of Quebecois singers, e.g I will go wherever you go, To love me more, If only love was enough, Everything is my personal effort, because you love me And My heart will go on It will be amplified by 47 musicians from the Orchestra Philharmonic du Québec and their conductor Alexandre da Costa, who had the idea to honor our greatest ambassador.

No piece will be distorted, we promise. “We try to make the songs bigger than they are,” Alexandre da Costa confirmed in an interview with QMI.

“It will be more important, but it will be no different from what people know,” he added, saying he was “involved” in the arrangements. “It is important to me that the arrangements capture all the emotions available.”

Naturally, Alexandre da Costa would have liked Celine Dion to attend the concert – he had followed her entire career and listened to her a lot in the 1990s, when Quebec sold tens of millions of albums every year – or even for her to go on stage alongside him, but the 55-year-old She is unable to do what she loves most in the world, which is singing, because she suffers from Stiff Person Syndrome, a rare disease that causes major convulsions.

Double your emotions

Alexandre da Costa, who makes it his duty to democratize classical music, loves to adapt contemporary music to expand its scope.

“We take the songs we know well, but we have 47 musicians, so everything is doubled. We are in another dimension of vocal support for the artists who will be performing the songs. […] Coordination multiplies emotions. Perhaps one day the great Celine herself will want to revisit her songs with our classical and symphonic arrangements. Celine Symphoniche will sometimes guide his musicians with the traditional conductor’s baton, and sometimes with his favorite instrument, the violin.

Diversity of voices is also important to Alexandre da Costa. “There will be pop singers – I’m thinking of Anne Silla and Barniffe Valcent (Céline Dion’s long-time backing vocalist, editor’s note) – but there are also some hybrids, classical and pop, who have an operatic score. “There’s a fusion of two worlds,” he said, speaking of the “merging of two worlds.” “Training – like Mischa Brügger, Gusman Lee and Vincent Niccolò – and we will put them together in a symphonic context.”

The voices of Josiane Cuomo and Jennifer Lee Dupuis will also be highlighted Celine Symphonic.
