Rafik Matta received a Lambertois Award for his contribution to enriching our cultural scene by sharing his passion for music with the community. 

Mr. Matta has always loved music, developing his talents in this field alongside his career as an engineer. Since his arrival in Canada, Mr. Matta has had many accomplishments to his name. Among other things, he spent seven years as organist and choirmaster in the Saint-Thomas-d’Aquin parish as well as in several other churches. In 1992, he founded the Telemann Ensemble, which specializes in performing music from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, and today he continues on as their conductor. A jazz lover as well, he has given numerous concerts and has been in charge of the jazz program at the CAMMAC summer music camp for five years. Very active on the music scene, he also sits on numerous committees and juries.

More recently, he contributed his engineering knowledge to the community by sitting on the Arena 2015 consultation committee.

Jacqueline Beaudry Dion et Jean-Pierre DionJacqueline Beaudry Dion et Jean-Pierre Dion
Lambertois Award in the “Culture” category

This Lambertois Award went to Jacqueline Beaudry Dion and Jean-Pierre Dion to salute their contribution to the cultural scene through their passion for ceramics. 

Mr. and Ms. Dion have always been active in the artistic and heritage communities, including the Galerie du centre de Saint-Lambert. They also contributed to the book marking Saint-Lambert’s 150th anniversary by writing the chapter on the arts. 

Only more recently did ceramics capture their interest. In the past five years, they have published five reference books on the subject, with a sixth one on its way, qualifying them as bona fide specialists. They thus serve as resource persons for collectors, but also as revisers of publications on this art.
