Choeur du quartier
Come and Sing!
Learn musical skills, meet new friends and have lots of fun!!!
The Choeur du quartier always welcomes new members.
We rehearse Saturday at St. James United Church, from 10 a.m. - 11 a.m. for children and 11 a.m. to noon for adults Each practice is followed by a snack time. Our calendar is divided in semesters:
Fall 2013: from September 22 until December 8
Winter 2014: from January 19 until June 1
Even if it is better to join the choir at the beginning of a Semester, we accept singers at all time.
Our musical program
Our musical director is Sara Wunsch, an avid musician and educator. After receiving her Master of Music in Music Education from The Boston Conservatory, she began her career as a music teacher, teaching young musicians from preschool to secondary school. She loves to lead her students to their concert performances, but also performs herself in a Broadway show choir and in parody videos for her YouTube channel. She is married and has two children, who are also in the choir.
In addition to discovering songs from many cultures and in various languages, we learn to read notes and some rhythmic notions. We also welcome on occasion guest artists for special workshops. Rehearsals are in English and in French, as needed.
Our choir is open to all children between 6 and 13 years of age. Parents are asked to contribute per child 35$ for the Fall Semester and 40$ for the Winter Semester. Families with more than one child will have a discount.
The Choeur du quartier seeks to:
- Empower children & adults through music
- Create a space where individuals from many cultures can be themselves and feel a sense of belonging and cultural ownership
- Bring musical education to children and adults who would not otherwise have access to it
- Develop understanding of French and English
- Open doors to Montreal's diverse music scene
