The French singer and choir conductor Olivier Delafosse will be the musical director of this training week. Valérie Joly, mezzo, and Sandrine Rondot, soprano will be our singing teachers.
 
The week starts on August 16th for the directing class (6 people at the most) and August 17th for the singers (around 24 people) and will be over on August 24th 2013.
 
A pre meeting is organized for the ones that are in Paris on June 22nd 2013 to organize everyone's work. Preparing tools will be offered.
The price (includes board and meals but no transportation, nor transfer) is 785 € for the choir singers + 170€ for directing class attendees.
Two concerts will be given on the spot. Another one is planned to be organised in Paris in early September.
 
Courses will be delivered in French but everybody speaks English quite well (Englis teachers and interpreters among the participants)
 
We are now looking for tenors, basses or directors willing to improve their techniques.
