French Choir and Orchestra

Saturday, July 25 at 7:30 pm
Cathedral of St. Paul
High Street - Worcester MA
Entrance: Free

French youth musicians from the Choeur d'Enfants et Jeune Choeur d'Ile de France (Children and Youth Choirs of France) and the Jeune Orchestre Symphonique Maurice-Ravel (Maurice Ravel Youth Symphony Orchestra) come together from France for this exceptional program to perform the Mass of St. Cecile by Gounod and excerpts from the Saint-Saens Symphony with Organ. Organist will be Ian Watson from the Cathedral.

Conductor Francis Bardot, an oratorio tenor soloist, performed in over 2,000 concerts across France, and made some 20 recordings with RCA and Deutsche Grammophon. His youth choirs have made over 20 highly praised recordings and receiving two "Orphee d'Or" awards from the French Academie du Disque Lyrique.

Please plan to attend this remarkable event at the Cathedral! There is nothing more soothing than hearing a 120 piece orchestra and pristine voices in lush acoustics. You may remember this group from two years ago for their remarkable performance of the Gounod Requiem at St. George's.
