MONTREAL, Jan. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - For the fourth consecutive year,

During this "must attend" stage arts rendezvous held on February 13-17,
Loto-Québec will present the winning 15 emerging artists in its Les entrées en scène Loto-Québec program.
Spotlight on New Talent
Selected by Québec regional entertainment networks between February and

Place du marché's Entrées en scène Loto-Québec kiosk.
A variety of talented singers will be on hand, including Félix Leroux,

d'Octobre. The spoken arts will be represented by Projet Diesel and
Marjolaine Beauchamp, while Bomata, Le Carabine, Misses Satchmo,

their stuff in performance for the many key show business players that
will be on hand at the Bourse RIDEAU event: Patrice Michaud, Misses

troupe. It's a showcase event that might enable them to tour the
