CSL launches "88 Keys to Music" campaign to buy a Baby Grand
Honouring our Volunteers

Mayor Housefather honoured by Mount Sinai at Segal Centre presentation of Les Belles Soeurs

The Auxiliary of the Mount Sinai Hospital hosted a presentation of the spectacular English production of “Les Belles Soeurs” at the Segal Centre on October 22. There was a cocktail dinatoire,  followed by the show. Our Mayor, Anthony Housefather, was the evening’s honouree and a large turnout helped raise funds for the Art  and Music Therapy Programs at the Côte Saint-Luc based hospital which specializes in short term Respiratory Care, Palliative Care and Long Term Care.

All of us on hand had a wonderful time during the social part of the evening and of course the show. Co-presidents Aline Bank and Lorraine Caplan and event chairs Grace Alter, Anne Applebaum and Rhona Backler did a great job. Mayor Housefather, who is seeking the Liberal nomination in the federal riding of Mount Royal, spoke to the gathering, expressing how fortunate we are to have an institution like Mount Sinai in our community.

Belles-Soeurs: The Musical is  based on the play penned 50 years ago by Michel Tremblay about a woman who wins one million trading stamps from her local grocery store and the subsequent stamp-licking party with friends and family. Astrid Van  Wieren is great as lead character Germaine Lauzon and the gorgeous  Élise Cormier shines as her daughter Linda.

The songs and acting are great and with the uber-talented Chris Barillaro as musical director how can they go wrong? Info: www.segalcentre.org.
