Fondation de la Place des Arts
FUTURE STARS’ GRAND PREMIERE
The FUTURE STARS’ GRAND PREMIERE is an annual benefit event that was created in 2011 to contribute to the sustainability of the Société de la Place des Arts’ access-to-the-performing-arts and artistic creation programs. This unique event brings together businesspeople, philanthropists, and arts lovers from all backgrounds, while giving talented young artists a chance to perform on a prestigious stage.
As part of the evening’s Community component, the event also gives a few hundred people—including many young people—an opportunity to attend the performance free of charge. For many of them, this serves as an introduction to the cultural world of the performing arts, as they find themselves in the audience at Place des Arts through the generosity of our donors and sponsors.
Since it was established, the event has enabled the Fondation to raise close to $2M. The event has successively been held under the artistic direction of high-profile personalities, including Gregory Charles, Alain Lefebvre, Nathalie Choquette, Maestro Jean-François Rivest, Christopher Hall, and Angèle Dubeau.
The next edition of the Future Stars’ Grand Premiere will take place on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 in Théâtre Maisonneuve at Place des Arts.
The Rentrée Nocturne is an annual event organized by the Fondation de la
Place des Arts’ Young Patrons Committee to raise awareness of the Fondation’s mission among young professionals, encourage them to contribute to the development of the performing arts and help provide greater accessibility to the arts to the public.
The 7th edition of this event, which attracted hundreds of young professionals, was held on November 11th, 2016, on the stage of Théâtre Maisonneuve of
Place des Arts. This year, Rentrée Nocturne enabled the Fondation to raise net profits over $25,000 which will be used to support Place des Arts’ Access-to-the-Performing-Arts programs.
Through this event—one of the Montreal’s largest gatherings of 25- to 40-year-old professionals supporting the arts—the Young Patrons Committee has raised to date over $265,000 for the Fondation de la Place des Arts.
