Choral Workshops 2015

Le Chant des Oyseaux
French version


We have been running choral workshops in France since the creation of the association : 21 choral workshops and 14 weekend courses.
'Rouse yourselves sleeping hearts…'
Our association 'Le Chant des Oyseaux' is aimed at practice and promoting of high standard choral singing. We run enhancement workshops, not note-learning workshops. Singers are expected to have studied the notes at home on their own before the workshop. So our choral workshops can offer the chance of a thorough work and an ever more active and finer listening in a very friendly and joyful atmosphere.
Spring workshop and summer workshops 1, 2 and 3 are open to amateur choral singers aged 18 years and over with a sound choral background and a weekly vocal practice, committed and involved in studying the music and in enhancement work.
Workshop 4 is open to choral conductors or music teachers with a good vocal practice. 
We propose an optional pre-course workshop in June to people who take part in our summer choral workshops 1, 2 or 3 and we send MIDI files to singers who do not read music.
'…Uncork your ears…'
                        Birdsong by Clément Janequin
Singers come from France, Europe and overseas. We welcomed singers from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Spain, Switzerland, UK and USA. 
Numbers are limited (up to 40 participants). So if you would be interested in a summer choral workshop, please apply a.s.a.p.
Official languages of our choral workshops : both English and French. So it is possible to take part in our workshops without speaking French fluently.


We run choral workshops in three different regions of France (Brittany, Languedoc-Roussillon and Rhône-Alps). Our workshops are usually held in summer but we occasionally propose weekend courses during other seasons.
We invite you to learn more about our forthcoming choral workshops. Please have a look and enjoy your visit !
We look forward to meeting you in our summer choral workshops. Please get in touch !
