Weekly Scottish Country Dance classes

A friendly way to start the weekend! Come as you are, no need for a partner. Scottish Country Dance ranges from very easy dances to mind-challenging ones. The two hours start off with all-level teaching (aimed primarily at beginners), then move on to intermediate and advanced.

Teaching is in French, but every formation is walked through even if you don’t speak French - and many in the group will be happy to speak English.

Paris Choral Society

Choral Pearls: PCS celebrates 30 years

Over the past thirty years, PCS singers have been challenged by taking on ever-more ambitious a cappella works, including a number of premieres. The programme of this concert includes the most beloved and enjoyable of these works, and many PCS alumni return to celebrate this milestone in song!

The pieces, both religious and secular in nature, span multiple periods. Contemporary composers are well represented, whose forms and lyrics answer to the solicitations and preoccupations of our present world.

As we enter a new decade of PCS history, pride of place will be given to songs of a celebratory nature, that we may share the joy of singing them, and our belief that music enriches all who participate in its offering and reception.
