PARIS - city of love, dreams and senses

Nobody can think of Paris without various associations and a multitude of pictures crossing their mind: the river Seine, the Hunchback of Notre-Dame, Napoleon, the Arc de Triumphe, the Champs-Elysees. No other city exalts the imagination like this metropolis, which is also particularly popular for its musical events. As of late these also include the Paris Music Festival.

Program

Performance details

Choirs should prepare a festival programme of 10 songs (max. 30 minutes) for the concert in the concert hall (Theatro Don Bosco or similar) and 2 Christian sacred songs for the concert of all ensembles which takes place in the Pantheon.

Please note that the concert venues are not yet fixed by the festival organisers.
