REHEARSAL for the 2018 - 2019 season have started: We just started our rehearsals for our In Memoriam concert, which is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of World War 1. We will be singing Mozart’s Requiem (ed. R. Levin), Ralph Vaughn Williams’ Towards The Unknown Region, Wie liegt die Stadt so wüst by Rudolf Mausberger, and Messe de Requiem by Jehan Alain.

On Saturday, June 30, the Paris Choral Society (PCS) hosted our first singing day to rehearse and perform Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem. Close to 100 singers registered for this event and at the end of the day we gave a concert.
The singing workshop and concert was led by our very own Zachary Ullery, Canon of Music at the American Cathedral and Music Director of the PCS. Accompaniment was by Andrew Dewar (American Cathedral organist and PCS accompanist) and we were joined by two professional soloists, Morgane Collomb (soprano), and Loïc Guguen (baritone).
There was an overwhelming positive reaction from all (singers and audience!) - who knows, we may do this again, Stay tuned!
