Biographies

ENSEMBLE VOCAL ARTS-QUÉBEC

Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec is a professional choir apart of the great tradition of choral singing in Quebec. After being directed for almost 40 years by its founder Yves Courville, the choir has appointed Matthias Maute as its new artistic director. Since its creation, the Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec has drawn on the repertoire of great masterpieces for voice and orchestra. Following the success of the performances of the oratorio The Triumph of Time and Truth by Händel, the choir was chosen to take part in the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Ensemble Caprice with the Mass in B by J. S. Bach at the Bourgie Hall. Since 2018 and as part of numerous collaborations with Ensemble Caprice, the choir has given concerts in Quebec in Saint-Jérôme, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Terrebonne, as well as in Westmount and Montreal. During one of its tours, the choir presented the famous oratorio Messiah by Händel in several regions of Quebec.
