One of our choirs is off to France

One of our choirs is off to France

A choral society from Wiltshire will travel to Lille in France next year for a music tour.

The choir will be spoilt for choice of performing venues in this beautiful area, including the magnificent Lille Cathedral.

They also plan to travel to neighbouring Belgium while on tour and here they can perform at the Menin Gate in Ypres and at St. Bavo’s Cathedral in Ghent.

Lille offers a great variety of things to do and places to see. These include:

• The Fine Arts Museum - Considered one of the best general-interest and fine arts museums in France.

• La Piscine, Museum of Art & Industry , Roubaix - Housing collections of paintings, sculpture, drawings, textiles, fashion, design and ceramics in a unique backdrop.

• The Main Square - The favourite meeting place for both locals and tourists, visit the second-hand book market or watch the locals play chess.

• Lille Old Town - Remarkably restored, guided tours are available in English.

• The Citadel of Lille - Still a military place, this is open to the public only during guided tours organised by the Lille Tourist Office; and

• The Wazemmes Market - One of the largest, liveliest markets in France.

"Lovely venues, lovely audiences, comfortable accommodation. Alahree was very prompt and efficient with her responses and understood our needs well."

Gill Chapman, Cecilia Singers, Berkshire.

"It was brilliant and everything I expected from a tour and more. Jonathan was brilliant. He was always patient with me and nothing seemed to phase him. Sabine was just wonderful, always willing to listen to what I suggested we wanted from the tour. She has endless patience. Playing at the Last Post was so moving, we felt very privileged to be able to perform at such a moving ceremony."

Cath Danswan, Swindon Choral Society, Wiltshire.
