This is a festival for mixed voices and I will ensure that all participating choirs have a chance to shine in the gala concert setting and in individual choir performances as requested.
Immersed in the French Canadian culture, Montreal is the second largest French speaking city in the world! It’s a place of incredible tradition and a wonderful location for a festival. It’s amazing to me that you can travel 300+ miles from New York City or Boston and be in a French speaking city in a foreign country.
Choirs are looking for affordability as well as safety in their tour experience. Here you can have that…plus an international tour and a high quality musical experience. In addition, traveling to Montreal is convenient as I believe there are direct flights from most major American cities.
This festival celebrates individual concerts, combined concerts, the comradery of festival rehearsals, a gala concert and the joy of singing for international audiences.
In addition to this festival, I am leading one in Iceland in 2018 for children’s choirs another destination that fits all the criteria choirs are looking for next year. In 2019 I will also be leading festivals in Toronto and Ireland.
It would be a great honor to work with you and your choirs in Montreal June 2018 if that fits your planning for next year.
I hope you can join us for this incredible opportunity to make great music together!
