Their musical journey began in 1974 in Blackburn Hamlet as a religious choir under the direction of Gilles Julien. As years passed, the group chose a more folk style repertoire singing mainly French-Canadian songs. It grows from the original fifteen members to eighty singers on some years, which included dancers under the direction of their choreographer Françoise Delisle-Julien, thus improving the visual and staging ensemble. In 2006, François Julien, Gilles and Françoise’s son who acted as the assistant director for a number of years, takes over the direction of the group while Johanne Leblanc becomes the choreographer in 2007 followed by Monique Cuierrier in 2011. The family musical talent is carried to the next generation as Christian, Gilles’ grandson and François’ son and member since 2016, accepts to compose and direct the arrangement of one of the songs that will be staged in 2017. All the members of the group benefit from the talent of their three excellent directors.
