A Christmas Concert Sparking Joy and Enchantment

Return to news

The Arthémuse Choir from Collège Durocher Saint-Lambert presented a concert at Maison Jésus-Marie (MJM) under the theme “Christmas Here and Abroad”. This performance was received as a balm to the heart by the Sisters of MJM who must constantly adapt to the constraints of the various waves of COVID-19.

As usual, the vocal ensemble, created in 1993, offered an enchanting musical program. The Sisters present in the Chapel and in their rooms (closed circuit viewing) were elated by the liveliness of the musical pieces that awakened certain memories.

It should be noted that the artistic director and orchestra director of Arthémuse is Joël Arsenault. The choir of mixed voices has been directed by Rémi St-Jacques since January 2022, replacing Giseline Pelletier who had been in that position since its foundation. This vocal ensemble brings together about sixty choristers. Some Sisters from the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) have been involved in the creation and development of this vocal ensemble.
