Golden opportunity for singers – Choral Evensong in Paris

The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) has a branch in France, and organises Singing Days for choral enthusiasts led by excellent conductors.  On 21 October 2017 it is organising a National Festival at the American Cathedral in Paris to sing Choral Evensong there, and one of the world’s leading church musicians, Malcolm Archer, will be directing it.  He has has enjoyed a distinguished career in cathedral music, which has taken him to posts at Norwich, Bristol, Wells Cathedrals and then Director of Music at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.  He is now Director of Chapel Music at Winchester College in Hampshire.

Singers who enrol receive the music ahead of time so that they can prepare for a day of rigorous but exhilarating rehearsals, culminating in the service of Choral Evensong.  Anyone who is interested can take part.  Thanks to the good TGV connection between Strasbourg and Paris the trip can easily be done in one day.   A booking form is attached.
