Founded in 1975, the New World Philharmonic Choir appointed Michel Brousseau as it’s artistic director and choirmaster in 1997. The choir
consists of 80 people of all ages and backgrounds, recruited from among the best singers in the greater Montreal region. The choir
focuses on the classical repertoire, particularly on sacred works, and performs large-scale concerts in the regions of Montreal and the
Laurentians. It co-produces and performs Mozart’s Requiem every November at the majestic Notre-Dame Basilica in the heart of Montreal, a presentation that has now become a cultural and musical tradition in the metropolitan area. Itsmajor spring concert, a notable event in the Montreal cultural calendar, is presented annually beneath the dome of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste church in Montreal.
