Today we’re announcing one of the many awe-inspiring projects we are involved with that will take place in 2014 as part of the 70th Anniversary of D-Day – the Paris Choral Festival.

Under the direction of Artistic Director Dr. William Skoog, the festival will feature Gabriel Fauré’s remarkable Requiem in the very church where the work was premiered – L’Eglise de la Madeleine, in the heart of Paris – as well as patriotic works to honor the occasion, culminating in a grand musical commemoration for the heroes that fought for freedom during the world’s greatest invasion.

Following the finale performance, choirs will journey to nearby Normandy for an Independence Day choral remembrance and wreath-laying at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial – site of the June 6th, 1944 Allied Invasion.
