AMPHITHÉÂTRE FERNAND LINDSAY – JOLIETTE
This outdoor amphitheatre—with its exceptional acoustics and its equally as remarkable natural backdrop—features concerts and recitals by internationally known musical ensembles, orchestras, and soloists. It offers a unique experience for the senses, an opportunity to hear, see, and breathe in the atmosphere at a concert in the heart of a hemlock grove…
The amphitheatre is located near Joliette in the Lanaudière region. Originally called the Amphithéâtre de Lanaudière, it was renamed in 2010 in memory of Father Fernand Lindsay, founder of the Festival de Lanaudière and the youth music camp that today bears his name.
The Société de la Place des Arts has been managing the Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay since the summer of 1995. The spectacular site was designed by architect Michel Gallienne and his colleagues, scenic artist Yvon Sanche, and acoustical consultant Lionel J. Lortie, all three of whom are from Québec City. Several artists and music critics who have seen similar facilities in the United States have nothing but praise for the Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay, in particular for its acoustic qualities.
Built in Georges-Rondeau Park, a 70-hectare piece of land along the Assomption River, the Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay opened its doors to its first audiences in July 1989. Its covered section can seat 2,000 people, while the lawn has room for 8,000 spectators. The Amphithéâtre has three parking lots to cater to all of its customers.
