Singing for Flavie: “The love of singing, vocal expression and choir practice has always been the central focus of my teaching and my musical practice. Regardless of the repertoire; singing is based, like many sports activities, on two pillars: breathing and posture. Singing is an inexhaustible source of energy, which allows you to build muscles and relax deeply, releasing negative emotions. Singing mobilizes 300 muscles, which must act at the same time to produce sound. This is why singing is a sport… of high level for professionals, of leisure for amateurs. The singers have a great conscience of their body and an excellent discipline of life. Singing is a complete activity - sports, intellectual, artistic -, to be consumed without moderation! "

Being choir director for Flavie: “Conducting the choir is a fabulous act. For me this means listening to what the group already knows how to do to get it to do even better but also listening to what the group does not know how to do and seek, invent, transmit tools to advance and show people that they are capable of doing much better than they initially thought; this is very humanly strong! It is also looking for the musical requirements of each score, transmitting them and making them emerge in the production. Create musical harmony between the different voices and desks. Always seek the balance between high standards and pleasure, being aware that pleasure also comes from success, itself the result of high standards and progress.

In conclusion and to summarize the character, she gives you one last quote:

     "My goal is to bring music to life for everyone in the most varied aesthetics possible, because in music, life is simply more beautiful! "
