The Orchestre Symphonique de Québec’s Pleins Feux concert on the Plains of Abraham received a very warm reception from concert-goers on what was otherwise a cold and autumn-like night.

An army of 50,000 descended onto the plains last Monday night, with folding chairs and dressed in winter clothing, to hear Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

The Morning Chronicle noted the unusual sight of a Scottish mariner teeing up a couple of “gutties” on the Plains of Abraham in 1854. The now familiar Scottish tradition, the sport of golf, will be returning to the Plains this week after nearly a century-long absence as part of the city’s 400th anniversary celebrations.

The City of Québec is slowly but surely progressing in its revitalization of St. Matthew’s Cemetery-turned-city-park in the St-Jean-Baptiste neighborhood. Most of the anti-Anglo graffiti has been removed from the Protestant cemetery’s headstones. Security personnel are now monitoring the park 16 hours a day to discourage any further vandalism.
