On a Canada Council grant 1977-9 Laberge studied organ with Xavier Darasse at the Toulouse Cons and took private harpsichord lessons with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam. In France he played at the St-Thomas d'Aquin Church, Paris, and (with musicians from the Capitole) at the Carmelites' chapel in Toulouse. One of his recitals was broadcast by Radio France and rebroadcast by Cologne Radio.
Laberge has given numerous organ and harpsichord recitals in Canada - on the CBC, on Radio-Québec, and at the Institut canadien, as well as for Ars Organi, Pro Organo, the Amis de l'orgue de Québec, the Concerts spirituels of Saint Joseph's Oratory, the Orford Festival, and the Festival international de Lanaudière.
According to Gilles Potvin, 'Dom Laberge plays with great musicological accuracy, but without affectation or dryness' (Montreal Le Devoir, 9 Aug 1975).
