Montreal, Canada

This hall has hosted internationally-renowned musicians, including members of Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Arlo Guthrie, Ranee Lee and Oliver Jones. The intimate 570-seat hall draws from Japanese influences as seen the horizontal grid of birch planks that forms the stage's backdrop. The spacious hardwood stage is easily seen from all vantage points in the room, and adjustable acoustic panels allow for a wide spectrum of natural sound.

Saint Joseph's Oratory

Montreal, Canada

Built in the early twentieth century, St. Joseph's is Canada's largest church. The church was founded by Saint André Bessette, famous for his healing powers. Many of those who he healed discarded their crutches and now thousands of these decorate one wall of the chapel. In the mid twentieth century composer Émilien Allard served as carrillonneur and it was here where he wrote and recorded many of his famous works. This is a venue rich in modern Christian and musical history, the perfect place for a choral performance.

Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

Québec, Canada

Known for performing miracles, each year disabled visitors from around the world are drawn to Sainte-Anne in the hopes that this church will heal them. Upon entering this church, you will see two pillars filled with tokens of the disabled (crutches, canes, etc.), each item having been left by someone who claims to have been healed. Though the first church was burned to the ground in 1992, its renovation is said to still maintain its miraculous healing powers. Who knows? Maybe it was the visiting performance group who truly healed these people!
