Leading up to our first concert In Memoriam: We are closing in on our In Memoriam concert, in homage to the dead and for reflection on the deeds of war. We will be singing Mozart’s Requiem (ed. R. Levin), Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Towards The Unknown Region, Wie liegt die Stadt so wüst by Rudolf Mauersberger, and Messe de Requiem by Jehan Alain.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be joined by four exceptional soloists: Cécile van Wetter (soprano), Louise Callinan (alto), Simon Edwards (tenor), Florent Mbia (bass).
Tickets are on sale now for the two performances: Friday, November 30 (20h) and Saturday, December 1 (19h). We hope that you join us one of these nights in what promises to be a moving but ultimately uplifting concert.
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!) and we are currently planning for another singing day next year. Stay tuned for the news on the piece to be chosen.
