If you weren't at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity last Thursday afternoon, you missed out on a fabulous concert by bass baritone, Dr. Douglas Renfroe. From Florida, he and his wife Dorothy are visiting Quebec City for the third summer in a row. The dean of the cathedral, the Rev. Christian Schreiner introduced him, mentioning that Renfroe is acting as the Cathedral's music director this summer.

Legendary musicians at Place d’Youville

The Festival d'Été is a world-class music extravaganza. Although the passes for this year's 11-day event were reasonably priced at $76, not everyone could afford them. That is why the free shows at Place d'Youville were so appreciated. Located in the heart of downtown, near Porte Saint-Jean, the wide set of stairs in front of the Palais Montcalm provides a great view of the stage.
