Since 2007, the Ephémère vocal ensemble has gathered in Lyon, under the direction of Régis Harquel, twenty amateur singers experienced. The vocal ensemble Ephémère has already recorded two albums with the label La Grange à Sons.
The vocal ensemble won an award in the choral singing competition of Draguignan in 2009 and at the national competition of Tours in 2011 and 2013 and made several tours and festivals in Alsace, Auvergne, Berry, Brittany, Basque Country, Vaucluse and Var.
The ensemble has distinguished itself several times during concerts at Choralies de Vaison-la-Romaine (in 2013, 2016 and 2019)
Through an eclectic repertoire and in the constant will of musical and vocal evolution of the choir, Régis Harquel associate the collaboration of Elsa Goujon-Gregori, Amandine Trenc and by Mireille Deguy – soloists and voice teachers.
It is this work, individual and collective, that allows everyone to progress for the musicality and vocal homogeneity of the choir.
Within the A Coeur Joie Movement, the Ephemeral vocal ensemble finds a training environment – for singers and choir director – and participation in musical projects that an isolated group does not can achieve alone.
