CHORALE DE LA SALLE
CHORALE DE LA
SALLE is one of the two host choirs for the MosaiK Chorale Festival. The
choir is one of several choirs at École secondaire publique De La Salle. École
secondaire publique De La Salle opened in the fall of 1971 with students from
Mont St-Joseph convent, Rideau Street convent and Académie De La Salle. Just
like Académie De La Salle, École secondaire publique De La Salle was named after
Saint Jean-Baptiste de la Salle.
In 1983, De La Salle opened le Centre de Douance (a programme for gifted students) and le Centre d'excellence artistique (a programme geared towards artistic achievers). De La Salle became the first school in Ontario to offers those programmes in French.
CHORALE DE LA
SALLE is directed by Robert Filion. For over ten years now, Mr. Filion has
taught singing and choral singing at the Centre d'excellence artistique De La
Salle, and achieved many successes with his students: they performed Bizet’s
Carmen in Ottawa and Kingston; the De La Salle Senior Vocal Ensemble reached the
national finals in the CBC Radio Choral Competition in 2000 and 2002; and in May
2001 the De La Salle Choir was invited to New York to sing at Carnegie Hall.
