Lachine International Vocal Academy, now at its third edition, allows young vocal artists to develop the essentials aspects of their career through intensive work, in a constructive and competition-free atmosphere.

Due to COVID-19, our team is preparing a virtual version of this advanced training course for 22 young singers and pianists on their way to becoming professionals. The program will include activities that are particularly appropriate to learning from a distance, such as:

  • vocal technique
  • French, italian and German diction
  • career development

This year, professors and participants come from Canada, United States, France, Sweden, Austria, Iran, Portugal and United Kingdom.
