The Evenko Foundation Program since 2010 has offered free singing and guitar lessons as well as scene oriented visual arts classes to 200 kids who are at risk of dropping out. The aim is to keep them engaged, in school, give them some self esteem, and improve their options for the future. The students are selected from all over Montreal and this year kids from Pointe-aux-Trembles, Daniel-Johnson, Dalbé-Viau, Georges-Vanier, Saint-Laurent, Cavelier-de-La Salle, Antoine-de-St-Exupéry et Père-Marquette high schools who have successfully completed their school year make up the 200. To raise money to support this program a show is organized each year.
On stage with the 200 students this year will be Marc Dupré, La Bronze, Ludovick Bourgeois, Travis Cormier and Margau. The show’s goal is not only to raise funds but to afford to the kids an experience they won’t soon forget. The young performers have worked hard for 22 weeks preparing for this evening. The show is directed by Olivier Loubry.
