The Place Ville Marie esplanade will vibrate to the sounds of various musical styles on September 14, when pop singer Ariane Moffatt, rapper Sarahmée and electro artist CRi will offer free performances there for the inauguration of theRingan imposing urban installation unveiled this spring.

The three artists accepted the invitation of Projet Nouveau Centre, an initiative of real estate investor Ivanhoé Cambridge, which is working to revitalize part of downtown Montreal.

The September 14 festivities will be marked by the first illumination of theRing, which from this date will be lit with diffused light as soon as night falls. In case of rain, the inauguration will be postponed to two days later, September 16.

L’Ringa creation of the firm Claude Cormier + Associés, constitutes the artistic pinnacle of this vast renovation project begun a few years ago, which notably includes the Place Ville Marie business campus and the Center Eaton shopping center.

This artistic installation weighing 23 tonnes and 30 meters in diameter has been floating above the Place Ville Marie esplanade since mid-June. The steel structure is intended as a gateway to the city, a sort of window that overlooks the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel on one side and the cross of Mount Royal in the distance on the other.
