Mezzo-soprano Ghislaine Deschambault performs in a wide ranging musical repertoire, moving easily from medieval to contemporary music. She recently performed in the show Perspectives d’Hildegarde, where she participated in the creation of eight pieces from Canadian composers inspired by Hildegarde of Bingen. During the past season, she also performed with the McGill Contemporary Ensemble in Extended Apocalypsis, a work by Philippe Leroux, and with Soundstreams in Unsuk Chin’s Cantatrix Sopranica at the 21C Music Festival in Toronto. With Ensemble Alkemia, an a cappella trio, she performed many concerts that gave the audience a chance to explore forgotten jewels, new works and revisited classics: En revenant, Hommage à Jeanne-Mance, Cirque Musical (Festival Montréal Baroque) and Mystères.
In concert, Ghislaine also sang Beethoven’s Mass in C major, Charpentier’s Messe de Noël, Mozart’sRequiem, Vivaldi’s Gloria and Handel’s Dixit Dominus. Her many collaborations include Ensemble Caprice, Harmonie des Saisons, Nouvel Opéra, SMCQ (Société de musique contemporaine du Québec), Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montréal, I Musici, the OSM Chorus and the Fila 13 dance company.
She is especially passionate about unique projects and the exploration of new artistic ground. La porte is her fourth collaboration with Chants Libres, after Alternate Visions (2007), Arias (2011) and L’Enfant des glaces (2000).
