The 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, Faure, Verdi and Brahms and masses by Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Dvorak, Puccini and Rossini.
In late November 2013 the Paris Choral Society launched its 20th Anniversary Celebrations by singing Handel's Hallelujah Chorus in Paris' newest shopping centre. Please take a moment to watch the reactions of shoppers when the singing began:
