LEWISTON — Sophie Poulin de Courval and organist Jacques Boucher will be guest artists at a concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 8, at the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, 122 Ash St.

De Courval is known for her dynamism, good humor and the originality of her various projects. Through chamber music, she feels her musical expression reaches its best and that she can communicate her sensitivity with others. As a chamber musician, she has performed a wide range of repertoire and appearances have included concert tours in Canada, the U.S., Romania and France.

Boucher is widely considered to be one of the key players in the Canadian organ world. A musician and broadcaster, he has produced more than 1,500 radio recitals with more than 100 Québec organists. He has also directed more than 200 recordings, including the collection “Les orgues anciens du Québec,” which won the Grand prix du disque — Canada. As an artistic director, he has also designed several thematic series devoted not only to organ music, but also to chamber music composed by French organists.

Concerts are free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted to restore the Casavant organ.
