Sherbrooke is the host of a large variety of music and theatre shows from widely known artists at the Centre culturel of the Université de Sherbrooke, the Théâtre Granada and the Centennial Theatre.
During the year, but specially on the summer, there are many free music festivals and performances, like the Concerts de la cité, the Sherblues & Folk and the Fête du lac des nations.
Sherbrooke is also known for the variety of its artistic life as well as for supporting emerging artists.
Places and organisms such as La Maison des arts de la parole and Le Tremplin receive storytellers and slammers, and small clubs such as La Petite Boîte Noire welcome emerging music groups.
The improvisation leagues of Sherbrooke, such as L’Abordage and the LUIS also contribute to Sherbrooke’s artistic life.
The city also has an array of places for art exhibits, such as Université de Sherbrooke’s Art Gallery, the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke, the Sporobole, the Foreman Art Gallery, the Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre and the Salle du Parvis, which receives local and emergent performance artists as well as art expositions.
