For our concert on December 9, we'll be presenting works by Mel Bonis, Lili and Nadia Boulanger, as well as better-known motets by Maurice Duruflé and Christmas motets by Francis Poulenc. 

Paris, at the turn of the 20th century, was a privileged place and time in the evolution of arts and culture, as female composers enriched the musical and choral repertoire and composers brilliantly continued the sacred tradition. 

As our musical director Tiphaine Legrand so eloquently puts it:

"Paris, at the turn of the 20th century, is not a traditional Christmas concert. And yet, through the works you will be hearing, I propose a journey toward the festive season: the light that transforms through autumn and then winter, the return home and the joy of a serene moment of meditation, the traditions and timeless characters of the nativity: the shepherds, the starry sky, the angels...".

Interested in finding out more about this program?  Then we invite you to watch this pre-concert chat hosted by François Gauthier (host of Chez Gauthier, Unique FM, 94.5) as he  discusses with Tiphaine he concert theme, its atmosphere and the choice of pieces on the program (in French only).

Our concert booklet is now available. Just click here.  

Approximate duration : one hour, no intermission.

Tipaine Legrand, directrice musicale

Tiphaine Legrand has a rich background in choir conducting. She studied singing and choir conducting with Chantal Masson-Bourque at Université Laval, then with Nicole Paiement and Robert Ingari at Université de Sherbrooke. Tiphaine is a passionate pedagogue of choral music and works with singers of all ages and in many musical styles. Founder and then artistic director of the ensemble Kô in its early years, Tiphaine particularly explored the links between early music and that of contemporary Québécois composers. She is responsible for the choral singing sector at the LUMI School of the Université de Montréal's Faculty of Music, and she is the music and choir director of the Chœur classique de l'Outaouais since September 2011.

Driven by a desire to make choral singing more accessible and inclusive, she directs a choir at the Centre AVC/Aphasie Laval as part of a pilot project initiated by SAMS (Société pour les arts en milieux de santé). She is also a member of the Collège des chefs de l'Alliance chorale du Québec and provides choral conducting training for primary school teachers.
