pcs_logoThe Paris Choral Society was created in 1994 when a group of avid non-professional singers in Paris persuaded the gifted choirmaster and music director of the American Cathedral in Paris, Edward J. Tipton (now in Los Angeles), to lead them on an adventure in music and voice.

The PCS is now nearly one hundred strong, its concerts a fixture on the Paris cultural scene, its acclaim and popularity multiplying by the season.

The mission of this volunteer chorale is to present the finest in choral music at affordable prices. The PCS's main focus has been on the masses and requiems of the great composers, sung with full orchestra. The PCS audiences have enjoyed master works such as the requiems of Mozart, Fauré, Verdi and Brahms and masses by Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Dvorak, Puccini, Rossini.and Bernstein

Since its foundation in 1993, the Paris Choral Society, – a group of singers of many nationalities, professions, ages, backgrounds, walks of life – has been making wonderful music together. In 1997 the NY Times said we were “unpaid but professional-level” and we like to believe that we’ve gotten even better since then! This film celebrates our first 20 years.
