Legados is offering a new cross-cultural choir class for adults aged 17 and up. At Legados, we consider singing and music as being universal languages that strongly contribute to the construction of a diverse society. The choral repertoire is primarily Latin American, although soundscapes specific to Montreal are also explored. It is the members of the choir who will give color to the sounds of our choir, while being encouraged to create dialogues between cultures.
Music allows us to rediscover ourselves and provides us with tools for coexistence and encounter.
Age : from 18 years old

8 meetings online - Coordinated by Julieta Lerman
From October 10 to November 28 | 19:30 until 21 hs
Poetry in a broad sense: as a way of looking, of perceiving and linking things, a different way of using language that opens us to new senses, where the game and the playful attitude is always welcome. To find one's own tone of voice to tell and give things the name one believes they have, as the writer Juan Forn says.
The idea of the workshop is to create a space to share, exchange and accompany the creative process of each one. We will read poems, fragments of novels and essays, see paintings, photographs, listen to music... We will explore the universes proposed by each artist and use different triggers to stimulate writing. Beyond the slogans, whoever has written material is invited to share it.
I go through the air
with a hand
by the breath
of an angel who insists
what is hers.

In this introductory tango workshop, we will work on body awareness (proprioception), the tango embrace and connection. We are going to discuss the two roles that form the dance couple to better understand the dialogue between the two people when it comes time to dance. It is not necessary to bring tango shoes.
Offered by Laura Carli and Alejandro Villalobos
8 classes with the two teachers.
Starts: October 21th, ends December 9d.
Schedule: 2,30 pm to 4 pm

Legados is embarking on a new musical project which will allow us to introduce to a new piano lesson for all ages. Through these courses (available in French, English and Spanish) we will be able to establish the first technical bases of the piano for beginners and, for those who are already at a more advanced level, we will work to solidify the technique and the capacity of musical expression through the instrument.
This new project, in addition to teaching the first notions and concepts with the instrument, will allow students to explore the universal classical repertoire of the great European composers and of different periods in history, and to discover the rhythms and colors of Latin American diversity and its composers.
- From 5 years old
- Individual lessons (according to the schedule agreed upon at the time of registration)
- Modality: at Legados-institute or online
Winter session: January 10 to June 3, 2022 (20 weeks) - break week of February 28 to March 5, 2022
Course open all year round. Contact Legados to register: Phone: (514) 867-9363, email@example.com.
Legados seeks to expand and enrich its children's choir class by exploring and discovering the soundscapes of Latin America. A choir is a space of coexistence and permanent dialogue, and it is in this space that we want to forge new bonds through music. Children between the ages of 7 and 16 will find in the Legados Children's Choir a space to develop their vocal resources, discover new musical genres and cultures through a quality musical experience through singing.
Music in childhood is not only an excellent pedagogical tool for the musical education of children, but in an environment such as Montreal, it also contributes to strengthening the socio-cultural fabric and helps create spaces for empathy and dialogue.
Age: From 7 to 16 years old
Dates: January 10 to June 3, 2022 (20 weeks - concert the last week) - break from February 25 to March 5, 2022.
Pre-audition. No choral or vocal experience necessary.
