A word from the Executive Director,
Marc-Antoine d'Aragon

Every summer for the past 20 years, Montreal Vocal Arts Festival has presented a variety of lyrical events as part of the Canadian Vocal Arts Institute.


The CVAI is en essential training center for emerging Canadian and international opera artists. Supervised by world-renowned masters, they spend nearly a month training not only vocally and musically, but also in career management and stage acting, across a panorama of trainings.


Each year, we welcome some forty young artists: singers, conductors and pianists. These are the elite from Canada and abroad who come to consolidate their foundations and prepare for their careers.


Having attended the program 6 times myself when I was just starting out in my career, I can testify to its excellence, and I'm delighted to be able to contribute to its development!
