• BASSES-LAURENTIDES • Choeur philharmonique du Nouveau Monde

For 60 years now, classical choral singing has been well represented in the Lower Laurentians region. Founded in 1961 by Mr. Jean-Pierre Guindon under the name Les Chanteurs de Sainte-Thérèse, hundreds of men and women who, during all these years, have come together every week to share their passion for classical music and great choral works. Now known as the Chœur philharmonique du Nouveau Monde – Sainte-Thérèse (CPNM-ST), its choristers come from all regions of the Lower Laurentians, from Chattam-Brownsburg to Mascouche on the east-west axis, and from Laval. in Mont-Tremblant on the North-South axis. It is in Sainte-Thérèse, at the crossroads of the main highways that are the 15 and 640, that everyone meets every Monday evening, under the expert baton of Maestro Michel Brousseau and the piano accompaniment of Danielle Maisonneuve, for refine the repertoire planned for the year.

 

Over the years, great works have been presented, mainly in the region of Sainte-Thérèse, but also in St-Eustache, St-Sauveur and St-Jérôme, thus allowing music lovers of the Lower Laurentians to welcome this event into their homes. ensemble often accompanied by an orchestra and professional soloists. The feeling of belonging to a unique musical family animates the life of the CPNM-ST and the values ​​of professionalism, surpassing oneself, hospitality and pleasure are at the heart of its activities.

 

An integral part of the Société philharmonique du Nouveau Monde, it is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that the choristers of the CPNM-ST join the other choirs and the orchestra to offer performances worthy of large professional ensembles. Although this requires consistency and rigor, the results offered to the public and their reactions testify to the great musical quality that emanates from the work of the choristers.

 

As president of CPNM-Sainte-Thérèse, I am very proud of what is happening with us and I can only encourage anyone wishing to be part of an outstanding choral ensemble to join us for a season. rich in discoveries, learning and passions around this magnificent work that is Brahms’ German Requiem.
