I have chosen Montréal as the destination for my 2021 KI Concerts festival. It is the 2nd largest French-speaking city after Paris, and I’m excited to explore the tastes and sounds of Europe here on our continent with you. Montréal is welcoming and comfortable while diverse enough for genuine cultural exchange to occur – and it’s so close to home for us all!
We will join with Canadian choirs to perform music of our lands as well as that of the French. I know that for many of you the opportunity to interact with other singers is as important as combining in one voice. We will enjoy rehearsals and the gala concert together but equally important are the individual performances and breakout exchanges often with local choirs that KI can arrange for you.
I look forward to working with you and your choristers – every festival remains an adventure for me – one I love to share with singers and their communities alike.
Rejoignez-moi à Montréal
