Daniel-S, Côté

The renaissance of a passion

              Because of his vast experience in performing arts of all kind, Daniel is the cornerstone of the group. From a young age, he participates in many singing contests in the Quebec region. At 17 years old, he directs his first choir before being admitted as a tenor in the prestigious Troupe V'là l'Bon Vent. Within the Troupe, his voice matures and he learns to move and dance on stage. Daniel has also participated in many projects as a chorister, as well as two music videos with Céline Dion as well as a performance with the group Foreigner. As time passes, he has given hundreds of shows in Quebec and Ontario with the Troupe V'là l'Bon Vent. After an 18 year hiatus, while he discovers and perfections his abilities in visual arts, he makes his return to music producing a private concert. He then returns to his old passion as a chorister and set creator for the Troupe. During these recent years, he has participated in the assembly and staging of four concerts for a vocal ensemble presented at the Salle Albert Rousseau of Quebec and the Imperial Bell. Desiring to improve his vocal technique, Daniel pursued advanced training with Madame Cécile Bédard, classic vocal professor in Quebec. He then makes acquaintance with two of Madame Bédards students, Denis and Jacob. The classic and popular vocal trio Caléro now takes form.

Jacob Roberge

Music in all its forms

              Jacob has been immersed in music since he was a child. At 10, he takes his first singing classes and starts playing the piano at only 12 years old. He then knew that his life would be centered around music. Jacob has been training for many years in classical singing (tenor), music theory, musical dictation and musical literature. As well as being versatile, he composes many styles of music and is a multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, electric bass, bouzouki drums, ukulele). These past years, Jacob has been part of the Choeur de l'Opera of Quebec as a countertenor and can be heard as a soloist and duo in the concerts orchestrated by the class of Madame Cécile Bédard. He also holds the role of Kurt from the musical La Mélodie du Bonheur presented in Quebec and plays the lead role in two operettas at collegial level. Even though he is the youngest, Jacob completes the vocal trio marvelously thanks to his varied musical prowess. He assumes the vocal and instrumental arrangements brilliantly.

Denis Lamontagne

From radio to stage

            Its when hearing a song by Bruno Pelletier on the radio that Denis is filled with the desire to develop his voice. He then meets Madame Cécile Bédard, vocal professor in Quebec. It is 1999. Even if his first encounter is difficult, the work and perseverance allow Denis to develop a much greater potential. To this day, he has been produced within some 30 concerts under the direction of Madame Bédard. He can be heard in particular in the operetta The Three Musketeers, in the parody of the Green Acres created by Vincent Coulombe and in a production of A Fiddler on the Roof in the role of Tevye the Dairyman. Thus, from parody to operetta as well as classical singing, Denis has developed a versatility that makes him a powerful baritone. Driven by his passion for classical and popular music, he joins Daniel and Jacob in 2016 to form the vocal trio Caléro.
