Winston McQuade’s commitment to the arts spans 30 years. He spent most of his career at Radio-Canada, hosting television shows such as L’heure de pointe, Télex Arts, Winston dans les îles et Winston reçoit. On the radio, he has animated successively Les belles heures, Radar, Les coups de théâtre et Multimédi’art. He has interviewed hundreds of creators and artisans in the fields of visual arts, literature, dance and theater here and in major events such as le Festival d’Avignon, le Festival de théâtre des Amériques, la Biennale de Montréal, le Festival international de nouvelle danse et le Carrefour international de théâtre de Québec. He is a recipient of the Rogers Communication Award from the Canadian Conference of the Arts for his art media coverage. Fifteen years ago, he decided to leave the CBC to regain his status as a professional artist in the visual arts, renewing a passion that inspired him at the École des beaux-arts in Quebec City in the 1960s. Sur le plan musical, son intérêt pour la musique symphonique remonte à sa plus tendre enfance lorsqu’il écoutait l’Opéra du samedi avec sa maman. À l’été 2011, il proposait à Radio-Canada une série de 13 émissions sous le titre Rencontre à l’opéra. Cette même année, il accompagnait, comme porte-parole, la première mouture du Festival d’Opéra de St-Eustache qui depuis a acquis ses lettres. Il est également porte-parole et présentateur du Concours musical international de Montréal. Membre de l’Association des critiques de théâtre du Québec pendant de nombreuses années, Winston McQuade est membre professionnel du Regroupement pour les artistes en arts visuels du Québec (RAAV) et a mis sur pied la Fondation Serge-Lemoyne, destinée aux praticiens de la discipline. Enfin, il offre ses services en tant que formateur, narrateur, conseiller en communication, traducteur, maître de cérémonie et commissaire-priseur pour des galas et soirées corporatives. Musically, his interest in symphonic music dates back to his earliest childhood when he listened to the Saturday Opera with his mother. In the summer of 2011, he was proposing a series of 13 programs to CBC under the theme Rencontre à l’Opéra. That same year, he accompanied, as spokesman, the first version of the St-Eustache Opera Festival, which since acquired its letters. He is also the spokesperson and presenter of the Montréal International Music Competition. A member of the Quebec Association of Theater Critics, Winston McQuade is a professional member of the Regroupement pour les artistes en arts visuels du Québec (RAAV) and has set up the Serge-Lemoyne Foundation foractive artists. Finally, he offers his services as a trainer, narrator, communication consultant, translator, master of ceremonies and auctioneer for galas and corporate events.
