Alex Vollant, bass

Baritone Alex Vollant is from the Innu First Nation in Québec. They moved to Vancouver in 2020 where they are currently completing a degree in Piano and Voice Performance at the UBC School of Music.

Alex previously sang in Chor Leoni’s Men Choir under the direction of Erick Lichte. Following this experience, Alex discovered a passion for choral singing and community building. They have since joined the ranks of Vancouver Youth Choir and have sung with the Christ Church Cathedral Choir. They previously studied voice with Allison Anderson and Neil Craighead, and currently study with Krisztina Szabó in the voice performance program at UBC.

When not singing, Alex spends their time writing. Their first book “Nipinapunan” is a poetry collection recollecting many of their memories of their home community, Pessamit.
