Why join the Cordes-à-Vent ?
First of all it is easy to join. You need enthusiasm and discipline. So
if you are a young or a mature person starting out in a
learning experience with a musical instrument, you are welcome to come
and see what it is all about.
If you have a musical training and are not a professional musician, you
may want to join this very dynamic (village) orchestra to maintain what
you have learned and keep yourself up to date and active.
If you are a professional musician, serious music student or music
teacher you may also enjoy the energetic and joyous practises.
Competition, exams, corrections and the like are not to be found here.

There are occasions for some to challenge themselves and play their
first solo or to add both classical and very different pieces
to their repertoire.
The diversity of musicians range from first time orchestra members, to
teachers, to parents and various other adults. Besides being bilingual,
there are often members of other nationalities. Weekenders and
full-time residents alike are welcome.
How to join
Teachers wanting to send their students for an orchestra experience and
anyone else who is interested is welcome and can reach
Françoise Turcotte at 450-538-7480.
Watching practices to see if this is something you would like to do is
also possible. Again please contact Françoise for the time
My daughter started
piano and violin. The violin was something we could take with us on
weekends and it became the instrument of choice. We discovered
Françoise who gave several lessons including one with a
‘boogie’ and a traditional piece. She was invited to join the orchestra
and decided to stay throughout her elementary and high school. It was
simply fun. Pieces for upcoming concerts were integrated into
schoolwork. She played her first solo with the orchestra and enjoyed
the non-academic (no exams!!) side. Even after high school, she often
came to the Christmas Concerts as they were so special for her.
