Choeur Gospel Célébration de Quebec:

Since its creation in 2000, the Quebec Celebration Gospel Choir has acquired a certain reputation on the music scene in Quebec and its performances are greatly appreciated by event promoters and spectators. Lucky enough to have shared the stage with national reknown performers such as Florence K, Johanne Blouin, Zachary Richard, Vic Vogel, Sylvie Desgroseilliers, Muna Mingole, Mélanie Renaud and Kim Richardson, the Quebec Celebration Gospel Choir was honored to be the guest artist for the show of French Legend Charles Aznavour at the Mondial Choral in June 2009. The choir also participated in several important events like the Rendez-Vous Gospel, Expo Quebec, the Quebec City Summer Festival in July 2009, the Sacred Music Festival, Rimouski Festi Jazz International, Quebec television shows such as “Bons Baisers de France” and “La Classe de 5e” and the Gospel Festival of Repentigny. The love story that bloomed between the whole province of Quebec and gospel music, has certainly given a major boost to the choir’s professional career, allowing it to grow in constant evolution towards true success.
In February 2009, the Quebec Celebration Gospel Choir made a brief appearance in New York City, just long enough to thrill thousands of spectators gathered in the beautiful Winter Garden of the World Financial Center, venue of the Pathmark Gospel Choir Competition. The choir totally blew the judges away and caused a major surprise by eclipsing the other ensembles and rising to the first step of the podium, earning the first place and the top prize of $5000. The Quebec Celebration Gospel Choir was awarded another prestigious title as well as a cash prize of $2500 in June 2010 at the McDonald’s Gospelfest Competition.The choir was selected from over 40,000 gospel artists & choirs to participate in the biggest competition of this genre in North America and was lucky enough to emerge as one of the big winners of this major event. First Canadian choir to be a finalist in this prestigious competition, the Quebec Celebration Gospel Choir won in the category Out-of-Town Choir at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
The Quebec Celebration Gospel Choir is in production of its first Christmas album to be launched in Quebec sometimes in the fall of 2010. The album will include a dozen of the most beautiful Christmas songs, the majority in French and some in English as well, rearranged with a gospel flavor. To achieve this, the Quebec Celebration Gospel Choir has turned to the expertise of two New York musicians and arrangers, whose reputation is second to none in the United States, Michael McElroy and Joseph Joubert. They were chosen in 2005 at the Grammy Awards as best vocal and instrumental arrangements.
