They have commented their experience...

« Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la visite pré-concert de M. Trudel, les élèves ont appréciés les extraits musicaux, son sens de l'humour. Les intervenants ont trouvé très pertinent le passage sur les débuts de M. Trudel comme musicien, alors qu'il trouvait cela difficile et qu'il n'était «pas bon». C'est un passage que nous pourrons réinvestir avec nos élèves qui vivent beaucoup de défis. Pour la portion concert, nous avons tous adoré. Les élèves ont d'autant plus apprécié qu'ils avaient rencontré M. Trudel avant. »

« Les élèves ont adoré vivre les œuvres de Johns Williams et ils se sont sentis privilégiés de recevoir un tel accueil par un Orchestre professionnel. »

« Bravo à Alain Trudel et les musiciens. Le choix du répertoire était judicieux et adapté au niveau des élèves. Merci pour ce beau moment musical. »

Symphonic Performances

This matinee will be hosted by a well-known actor. A great activity based on sport and self-achievement! Students will hear the powerful Olympic Fanfare and Theme, which was created for the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. A hockey commentator will steal the show in P.D.Q. Bach’s work! The matinee will end with Tchaïkovsky’s energetic Symphony No.2. A concert full of vitality and dynamism!

Join the orchestra

We invite your talented students to play with 53 professional musicians. In addition, Maestro Alain Trudel or a select musician will give a masterclass in your estxwablishment. This makes for a total musical and concert immersion! The program is available for advanced elementary school students and regular secondary and cégep students. Places are limited!

Orchestre des jeunes de Laval

The Orchestra welcomes a new ensemble! Spread the word about the Orchestre des jeunes de Laval-Laurentides to your students. Auditions will take place on September 9th, but you have until September 1st to send your application.

Concert in school !

Learn more about chamber music and brass instruments, all from the comfort of your class! Cuivres à l’opéra plays the greatest and most beautiful operatic arias, performed by members of the brass section led by Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille. Surprising!

Preludes

Your concert will be presented in the first half. A small group of participants will present a 15-minute concert before the Orchestra’s performance in the Salle André-Mathieu hall. Attend the Orchestra’s concert free of charge after the mini-concert. You don’t need to be a professional musician, for the Orchestre symphonique de Laval believes that experience is more important than results. This program promotes the spirit of self worth and academic perseverance.

Music Workshop / Choral singing

Music A professional musician or composer will visit your school. Seize this opportunity to attend a private and customized concert—or compose a work with your class and our composer. Ask questions about the composer’s career, training, instrument, favourite piece, or anything else that comes to mind.

Choral Singing Our choirmaster will host a workshop to get children’s vocal chords in shape. In the space of an hour, children will learn vocal techniques and a song that will have them singing in chorus.
