On Thursday, June 1, at 10:30 a.m., over 1,200 grade 4 to 8 Francophone students from some 20 Greater Sudbury, Sudbury East, and Espanola schools will gather at Bell Park’s Grace Hartman Amphitheatre for a St-Jean Baptiste concert featuring the Francophone artist LeFLOFRANCO with DJ Skorpyon. The concert is presented jointly by the Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon and Conseil scolaire du Grand Nord as part of the 25th anniversary of St-Jean Sudbury.

This quality 90-minute performance will mark the launch of the numerous St-Jean Baptiste activities to take place in Greater Sudbury during the month of June. With the presentation of this concert, the Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon and Conseil scolaire du Grand Nord want to expose their students from French-language Catholic and public schools to a Francophone cultural experience and to reinforce their links with Francophone community partners.

Ottawa-based hip-hop sensation, LeFLOFRANCO brings to the table a sound high in energy mixed with heartfelt lyrical content. Striving to push Hip-Hop’s sound towards new heights, he refers to his unique sound as multicolored urban pop. LeFLOFRANCO seeks to take the public on a musical journey going from modern Hip-Hop, to Trap, to EDM all the way to the Caribbean Soca vibes, reggae fusion and music from his Haitian background; Kompa. Since the released of his first full-length LP “Force inhérente” in 2019, he has performed from Ontario to British Columbia. He has also released two music videos; the festive-summer-ready “Bal exotique” and the gritty-thought-provoking “On en a assez!.”

The first part of the show will feature Rodney Meilleur from Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon, Véronique Champoux from Conseil scolaire du Grand Nord, accompanied by DJ Alex Reed, a graduate from Collège Notre-Dame (Sudbury).
