Tutti Quanti VI Choral Workshop

On February 18 and 19, 2017, the Montreal Choral Institute will welcome Montreal conductor Jean-Sébastien Vallée, who will lead two afternoon training sessions with some Montreal-area vocal ensembles and other selected choristers. The workshop will end with a gala concert where the participating choirs will have the opportunity to showcase their own repertoire and will then form a massed choir to sing the pieces focussed on during the training sessions.
