French Choir to visit in July 2019
This Summer we welcome you to Petits Chanteurs de France. The Petits Chanteurs des Hauts de France, from the Lille area, will perform at St Mark’s during their North American tour. We will host them for 2 nights (July 23/24), and they will present a concert at St Mark’s on Thursday evening, July 25 (time tentatively set for 7pm). Comprising 39 boys and 6 adult chaperones, this promises to be a wonderful evening of music.
This group is not the same one that sang for us last year, from Bordeaux, but my choir in Peterborough hosted them in 2016 and they were terrific.
Hosts will be needed, and if you can help, please do let me know.
Please be sure to tell your friends!:
Thursday July 25 tentatively 7:00
