Great turnout for the Copper Quintet

By Matthew Sylvester, Special to the Record

A crowd 100 strong came to see the Sherbrooke symphony orchestra’s Copper Quintet perform in Cookshire’s Parc des Braves last Sunday.
“It’s a perfect night,” said Manon Carrier, organizer of the concert, greeting the crowd before the music began.
2020 marks the fifth year the musicians have come to Cookshire to perform. According to Carrier, who acts as head of the John Henry Pope cultural building, last year the Quintet managed to pull a crowd of 150 to the park. She was expecting a much smaller crowd this time around amid pandemic fears.
The next concert will take place at the park at 5 p.m. on September 8th, and will feature a stringed duo of violinist Natalia Kononova and guitarist Hugues Gagnon. Concert-goers are invited to bring dinner with them and have a picnic on the park grass, or to pick something up at the nearby IGA or one of the town’s restaurants.
