The Choeur de chambre du Québec is an ensemble devoted to premiering vocal works, predominantly in French, including several works by its artistic director, Robert Ingari, as well as others by its member-composers.
The goal of the ensemble is to enrich the contribution of the francophone community to the Canadian choral repertoire through its mission to promote the French language with stimulating and diverse programming.
Since its creation in 2011, some of the choir’s realisations include a concert at the Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall in New York, invitations from Université de Sherbrooke, Festival Classica, Festival Piopolis, Choralies internationales (Edmonton), Concerts prestiges du Mondial choral Loto-Québec as well as a joint concert with the Chœur Régional Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.
