Trois-Rivières, January 19, 2016 - The Board of Directors and the team of the Corporation des Évènements de Trois-Rivières is proud to present the spring program of the brand new Cogeco Amphitheatre Cabaret.
It will open officially on March 30 with a special Jazz evening. This new indoor venue, literally on the stage of the Cogeco Amphitheatre, will accommodate up to 700 people depending on the chosen configuration. The goal is to allow spectators to experience a different musical experience in an intimate and warm environment. The small volume of the room will allow closeness with the artist on stage. The facilities will allow spectators to have a drink while enjoying a wide range of shows.
Many artists with different styles will perform at the Cogeco Amphitheatre Cabaret during spring 2016.
