Paris Choral Society

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.

The Paris Choral Society, "an unpaid but professional-level choir" (New York Times), is a friendly, international choir with members aged between 20 and 80.

Coming from differing backgrounds, professions and walks of life, members of the Paris Choral Society are united in their 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.”

Rehearsals are conducted in English.
