The mission of Chœur des enfants de Montréal (CEM) is to provide an outstanding musical education to young people who love to sing.
This bilingual ensemble provides a friendly and stimulating environment where choristers work together to attain a high-level choral level.
CEM choristers perform a diverse repertoire, witness to the multiculturalism of Montréal and Quebec. Accompanied by professional musicians, each concert presents a musical adventure with different instruments, languages and styles. Their work focuses on classical music, but also includes jazz, popular, folk, gospel and world music. Over the years, choristers have sung in more than 20 languages. The choir also celebrates the works of Canadian composers and the rich musical traditions of Quebec.
