LE CHOEUR DES JEUNES DE LAVAL
Le Choeur des Jeunes de Laval is a mixed voice vocal ensemble formed in the fall of 2012. Under the musical and artistic direction of Philippe Ostiguy, le choir is composed exclusively of college and university choristers graduated from Les Petits Chanteurs de Laval and Les Voix Boréales.
The creation of this group meets the desire of these young people to continue to see each other while pursuing together what they do with so much happiness and talent since the age of 9 or 10: singing!
In collaboration with Les Petits Chanteurs de Laval and Les Voix Boréales, the choir won the Coup de Coeur du jury (Favorite of the jury) at the choir competition Chantez pour Sainte-Justine avec Céline Dion (Sing for Sainte-Justine Hospital with Celine Dion) and had the chance to accompany the international star at the Maison symphonique de Montréal. Le Choeur des Jeunes de Laval had the privilege of singing twice with the legendary band The Rolling Stones: at the Bell Center in June 2013 as part of their 50th anniversary tour and in July 2015 on the Plains of Abraham during the Summer Festival of Quebec. The choristers also participated in Quebec National Day performances in Laval in June 2016 and 2017 with among others Richard Séguin, Patrick Watson, Ariane Moffatt, Louis-Jean Cormier and Marie-Pierre Arthur. Le Choeur des Jeunes de Laval regularly collaborates with various symphonic orchestras. In August 2017, the choristers have had the privilege to be part of Montréal Symphonique, a major event of the festivities surrounding the 375th anniversary of Montreal. This great outdoor concert, presented in front of a crowd of more than 80,000 people, brought together three famous Montréal’s orchestras – the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, the Orchestre Métropolitain, the McGill Symphony Orchestra – and 20 renowned artists including Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Patrick Watson and DJ Champion.
Each season, Le Choeur des Jeunes de Laval participate in three concerts produced by the organization:
- Mid-seasonconcert in December
- Talent Show (vocal and instrumental show of numbers entirely edited the choristers)
- End-of-season concert in May
En complément de formation, les choristes participent, à un camp musical d’une fin de semaine à l’automne.
