The mood was enthusiastic at the June 17 press conference, as Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton and La Grande Virée Artistique de Sherbrooke announced their new partnership for the next three years.
The art circuit, holding its 13th edition this year, is recognized for promoting the innovative, creative and original approach of the region’s artists. These values of exceeding expectations are naturally aligned with the values of excellence and leadership pursued by Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton. This is why the alliance between the two organizations seemed ideal.
Luc Beaudoin, President of La Grande Virée Artistique, took the opportunity to emphasize the event’s rapid growth, particularly due to dynamic networking with the business community and the artists’ constant dedication.

As the event’s spokesperson, Sarah Phaneuf, Tax partner at the Sherbrooke office, announced a new outcome of this partnership, the creation of the Claude Métras Award, in recognition of this businessman’s many years of involvement in Sherbrooke arts and culture. The award highlights the next generation of artists and will be presented annually to an artist who has been particularly outstanding in his or her field.
Under the theme Secrets partagés (Shared Secrets), La Grande Virée Artistique will be held in Sherbrooke from June 28 to July 8. For more information about the program and to consult the road map of the sites, visit www.lagrandevireeartistique.qc.ca.
