Céline Dion is without a doubt one of the most famous singers of all time. Born in Québec, Canada, she established herself on the world stage with one hit song after another. She alternates between tours and a residency at the spectacular Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Solotech has been working with Céline Dion for over 20 years, in particular through François Desjardins, Vice-President of Research and Development (R&D) at Solotech and System Engineer for Céline Dion’s concerts. François Desjardins and Denis Savage, Tour Manager, are a winning duo whose combined expertise has helped put on a wide variety of shows for one of the greatest voices in pop.
