Did you say classical?
The classical workshop, led by Blanche Latour, will be unveiling its theme very soon!
Blanche Latour
With degrees in organ, musicology, pedagogy and choral conducting, Blanche's passion for choral singing is linked to a constant quest for quality of sound and a tireless desire to help each chorister achieve their full potential. Our choir director will use all her energy and professionalism to offer you a week of choral singing rich in learning, sharing and emotion.

Did you say gospel?
The rhythm of this workshop will be the gospel of its origins, in which the movements of the body lift the voice and carry the spirit away. We'll be discovering (or rediscovering, in the case of some well-known songs) a repertoire
Learning these songs will also take us through some technical difficulties, both musical and vocal, and we'll tackle them with joy and precision. This workshop is open to everyone, as long as they're in a good mood and enthusiastic.
