Our new artistic director

We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Gabrielle Gaudreault, as the new choir director and artistic director of the SLCS.
Nineteenth in this position and the first woman to conduct our choir since its founding in 1919, she succeeds Xavier Brossard-Ménard with whom we have enjoyed working for the past seven years.

Gabrielle holds a PhD in Choral Conducting from McGill University (2020). She has worked with the SLCS on several occasions, as a pianist accompanist and as a substitute conductor. We have always appreciated her sensitivity, as well as her great musical and pedagogical skills.
In addition to directing the Choral Society of Saint-Lambert, she will also be the artistic director of the Ottawa Choral Society and will be a lecturer at McGill University.
Thrilling automn in perspective!
 
We will hold AUDITIONS on Tuesdays, August 30 and September 6.

Meet the St. Lambert Choral Society

Founded in 1919, the St. Lambert Choral Society celebrated its 100th anniversary in February 2019. The first centenarian choir in Quebec, and the 3rd in Canada, the SLCS received a medal from the National Assembly in 2019, as well as the Prix Lambertois de la culture.

The festivities for our 100th anniversary, with the great Canadian bass Joseph Rouleau as our patron, gave tremendous momentum to our choir, which experienced a significant surge in growth in 2019-2020.

Our mission

The mission of the SLCS is to promote and disseminate choral singing in St. Lambert and across the Montérégie through its innovative programs, accessible to a broad audience. Our repertoire includes a variety of styles: classical music, sacred works, opera extracts and songs from diverse cultures from around the world.

Well anchored in its community, the SLCS plays an important role in our musical ecosystem. It allows choristers to develop their talent under the direction of a conductor chosen for his pedagogical and artistic qualities. It also offers them the chance to share the stage with soloists and professional musicians, who are also very proud to be associated with a choir of this quality.

The SLCS presents a series of three concerts each year, which attract over 1800 music lovers. We also participate in the Gift of Music which helps the most disadvantaged communities, at the Remembrance Day ceremony, at the evening for new St. Lambert residents, and at the St. Lambert Days (Saint-Lambert en fête) festival.
