Ile-de-France Youth Choir
ΚΑΘΟΛΙΚΟΣ ΚΑΘΕΔΡΙΚΟΣ ΝΑΟΣ ΑΓΙΟΥ ΙΩΑΝΝΗ ΒΑΠΤΙΣΤΗ
The Jeune Chœur d’Ile de France (Ile-de-France Youth Choir), founded in 1999, is a natural extension of the Chœur d’Enfants d’Ile de France (Ile-de-France Children’s Choir).
The young men and women in the choir, who range from 16 to 25 years of age, receive a high standard of training in vocal technique. They most often perform with their own soloists, some of which have successfully launched a professional career.
Since its inception, the Jeune Chœur d’Ile de France has received well-deserved notice in rarely performed and complex works, such as Poulenc’s Stabat Mater and Gloria, Handel’s Dixit Dominus, Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, Duruflé’s Requiem, Bach Matthäus Passion and Guy Ropartz’s Mass in honor of Saint Anne.
The choir’s annual tours have taken them to many countries, including the US, Canada, and Greece – also the destination of numerous music-themed trips over recent years.
