Soprano Francine Labelle moved to Toronto from Montréal in 1994 and joined the Tafelmusik Chamber Choir in 1995. A former member of the Tudor Singers, the Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montréal and the Montreal Opera Chorus, Francine works as a free translator. When not singing or working, she can be found at the dojo, practising karate and marvelling at the similarities between music and martial arts. Photo credit: Peggy Lampotang.
