Downtown choirs to brighten your Saturdays!
One of the most beautiful customs of the festive season, Holiday choirs, will be offered at Village_XP with a reinvented formula. In Downtown Montreal’s urban setting, singers invited by XP_MTL will be there to share the magic and animate cultural spaces on Sainte-Catherine Street!
