Not even a week after the ‘Fête de la musique’ (which Jules is eagerly anticipating), the Festival Voix sur Berges is taking place in Paris. On June 26th, more than 3500 singers belonging to 140 choirs from Ile-de-France will reunite on the banks of Canal Saint-Martin.
The programme: from gospel to jazz, through to rock and international music, all different music styles will come together for this 2011 edition. The choirs will disperse over 18 different natural sites on the edge of the canal and in the Villemin park.
The key event of the afternoon will undoubtedly be the big final gathering, which at 7.30pm, will consist of 700 choir singers in front of the place Jemmapes. The composer and choirmaster John Meldrum was approached for the 15th anniversary of the festival. He will therefore be giving us the sequel to the piece ‘The River of Love’.
An event that Jules does not intend on missing, being the music fan that he is!
