Cecile Larochelle is coming to Nelson’s Shambhala Music and Performance Hall on Monday.

Larochelle is the owner/operator of LaRochelle Vocal Studios, where, as a member of the International Voice Teachers of Mix, she teaches the vocal method known as Mix.

She’s been in the music business her entire life, as a singer, writer, arranger, performer and teacher.

Larochelle is currently focused on studying the voice as an instrument and enjoys annual conferences with the experts of the world, including speech therapists, speech pathologists and other teachers of Mix.

“To say the human voice is a fascinating instrument is a huge understatement,” Larochelle says.  “It is a marvelous instrument and I’ve spent my life studying it. I continue to practice and learn. I find teaching the science of the voice keeps me focused on the learning. I am continually learning and practicing, and still loving every aspect of it.”

Larochelle will be working with the vocal students from Selkirk College in the morning and then offering a general clinic in the theatre in the afternoon at 1:30.

“We are thrilled to have a music educator and vocalist of this calibre come and work with our students and faculty,” says Selkirk College voice instructor Laura  Landsberg.

Larochelle has worked with many prominent artists such as Bryan Adams, George Benson, David Foster, Shari Ulrich, Kenny Rogers, Sheena Easton and many more.

Tickets are $15 and $5 for students at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert is at 7:30.
