France Tour 2007

VIVA LA CHORAL ARTS!

The Baltimore Choral Arts Society made a triumphant tour of France in the summer of 2007, with sold-out performances in three cities, including Paris and Aix-en-Provence. Embarking on their first international concert tour since 1987, Music Director Tom Hall and the Chorus received standing ovations and enthusiastic cheers at every performance.

The concert tour opened in Paris on July 7, 2007. Busses were not permitted on the bridge leading to the Eglise (church) Saint Louis en l’ile, so the entire chorus walked to the performance in full concert dress!
