Have a guest at your place

Register as a guest

Offering your couch means offering your home as lodging for one or more choristers from around the world!

Offering your couch means much more than just putting a roof over their heads; it means making your guest feel welcome and at home in a new and unfamiliar environment.


Greet the chorister at his/her arrival;

Provide the chorister with a place to sleep during his/her stay;

Provide some meals; (may vary depending on choirs);

Provide basic services (bed linens, washroom, towels, etc.) and a clean, welcoming and safe environment;

Provide basic transportation for choristers (to and from venues, concerts). If your home happens to be situated close to a metro or bus line, please note that all festival participants enjoy free access to the City of Laval public transit system;

Note that the duration of choristers’ stays may vary. Choristers will be matched with host families according to the latter’s availability and the number of beds/couches available.


Provide as much information as possible, so that the host may perform his/her duties with maximum efficiency;

Treat the host as a full member of the organisation;

Offer support and guidance;

Listen to the host’s ideas, concerns, and suggestions;

Clearly express your gratitude.


We realise that welcoming someone into your home involves serious commitments on your part. To show our appreciation for the generous gift of your time and support, and for your commitment to your guest (who is by extension a guest of the festival), we would like to offer you certain privileges.
