Montreal-based choir director and pianist Roseline Blain is recognized for the expressive quality, fire and emotion she conveys in her performances. She has been passionately working in choral circles for over twenty years.
She is presently the founder and artistic director of several choirs in Montréal. The Choeur du Plateau was twice awarded 2nd place in its category at the National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs, as well as earning the distinction of Best Eastern Region Choir in 2017. It has been actively involved in many major events in the Montréal area. In 2019, the group was named “choeur fleuron ambassadeur” the highest distinction granted by the Alliance des chorales du Québec.
Roseline Blain also directs two equal-voice ensembles, Gaïa and Phoebus. The latter was awarded first place in its category at the National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs in both 2015 and 2019 and the former, Gaïa, was awarded second place in its category this year. In this same competition, Les Petites Voix du Plateau, also directed by Ms. Blain, was recognized as the “most promising new youth ensemble”.
In June 2015, on very short notice, Roseline Blain replaced the Artistic Director of the Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal for a twelve-concert tour of Denmark and Germany.
Ms. Blain has also served as the General Director of the Choeur de chamber du Québec, in which she sang for five years and studied with directors Robert Ingari, Jon Wahsburn and Andrew Mcgill.
In addition to having lectured at Université de Sherbrooke, Ms. Blain penned program notes for the Sherbrooke Symphony Orchestra for many years.
