What is IBPChante?
IBPChante is a mixed, a cappella choir of about 20 people. It was founded in 2018.
What's the point?
The point of the choir is to explore the fact that singing together is both magical and quite accessible. The choir attracts friendly and enthusiastic people who are a pleasure to work with.
Who can sing with you?
The group is open to IBPC students, academics, and staff, as well as colleagues from neighboring institutions of the Latin Quarter. The only requirement is to be enthusiastic about singing in a group, and discovering the power of music and of our own voices.
What is the repertoire?
We sing a wide variety of mostly 3 and 4-part music, from Renaissance classics to a cappella jazz and pop music arrangements.
When and where do you practice?
We practice weekly throughout the academic year, on Wednesday from 5:30pm to 7:15pm. The sessions were in the beautiful library at IBPC before the pandemic. For now, we practiice outside, under the arch of the IBPC building, which offers a nice protection against the elements and decent acoustics.
Sounds great! How do I join?
