Paris Choral Society

The Paris Choral Society (PCS), "an unpaid but professional-level choir" (New York Times), is a friendly, international choir with members of all ages that performs classical as well as contemporary choral works.

Coming from differing backgrounds, professions and walks of life, the PCS membership is united by its commitment to the common goal of musical excellence. Its members are young and old; locals, longtime expats and those passing through Paris for a few years; people who have been singing all their lives and others relatively new to it. “Le Monde de la Musique” praised the conductor’s gift for “drawing the best from his singers without ever losing his smile” and points out that being a PCS member not only means working hard at rehearsals, but also “doing everything, from setting up and taking down the risers to the administration.”

A working Board of Directors of thirteen volunteer members, in conjunction with the conductor, is responsible for the management of PCS.

Rehearsals are conducted in English.

Paris Choral Society members and friends gathered, flashmob-style, at the Beaugrenelle Shopping Mall on 16 Nov 2013 to surprise the shoppers with holiday spirit, singing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah.
