People have been singing polyphony for centuries. There is a wide range of interesting choral events all over the world. We propose you to take part in our choral workshops in France and experiment our French touch.


We have been running choral workshops in France since the creation of the association in 2005 : 25 choral workshops and 14 weekend courses.
Our association 'Le Chant des Oyseaux' is aimed at practice and promoting of high standard choral singing. We run enhancement workshops but 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 the quest for an ever more active and finer listening in a very friendly and joyful atmosphere.
We propose an optional pre-course workshop in June to people who take part in our summer choral workshops 2 or 3 and we send MIDI files to singers who do not read music fluently.
Our workshops are open to amateur choral singers aged 18 years and over with a sound choral background and a weekly vocal practice, committed to preparing the music beforehand and to making progress.
Singers come from France, Europe and overseas. We welcomed singers from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the USA. 
How many participants ?
Numbers are limited (up to 40 participants only). So if you would be interested in a summer choral workshop, please apply a.s.a.p.
Official languages
Our choral workshops are bilingual : both English and French. So it is possible for you to take part in our workshops even if you do not speak French fluently.
