The concert headliner is international blues/jazz pianist Didier Chasteau, a jazz composer whose family originates in the south of France. He was first noticed at the age of 17 while participating in television shows in Europe and a series of concerts across France including the International Festival of Nice.  From then on, music ruled his life.  As a teen, he discovered jazz, harmony and the joy of composing pursuing learning with very talented musicians, polishing his compositions and his improvisational technique. In the years which followed, he took part in numerous festivals and concerts with very talented musicians, performing with musical personalities like Oscar Peterson, Diana Krall, Duke Ellington and Oliver Jones.  Now a resident of the area, Chasteau likes to perform during fundraising events like the one to be held at Église Saint-Grégoire Church on Saturday evening. That concert takes place on September 29 at 7 p.m. inside the church. Local singer Catherine Picard will be part of this concert.
