The Chapelle de Québec, soloists and the Violons du Roy, led by Bernard Labadie, delivered a transcendent Messiah at the Palais Montcalm last week.  

The Violons du Roy, four soloists and the Chapelle de Québec directed by Bernard Labadie gave a breath-taking performance of George Frideric Handel's immortal Messiah at the Palais Montcalm last Thursday and Friday. Members of the audience felt as if they had been transported to another space and time by the orchestra, the soloists and the 30-voice choir.
