Oh-la-la! Medici hits Paris

Medici Choir singing in Paris
Medici Choir's first trip abroad was to Paris, back in January 2000, as part of the International Amateur Choir Festival.

We joined choral groups from all over Europe, and took part in several concerts at high profile venues, such as the UNESCO Palace and the Grande Arche de la Defense (right).

The choir took over a small hotel in Montmartre, not far from the famous Sacre Coeur church.

The Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower glittered on the hour, every hour, to celebrate the new millenium.  
Our repertoire was a mixture of songs with an English flavour - from old 16th-century madrigals to Scottish folk songs and our national favourite 'Auld Lang Syne'. As well as the programme organised by the Festival, we also took part in a service at a Portuguese church on the outskirts of Paris, where we sang Schubert's Mass in C, which was broadcast on Portuguese radio!

The event was a real success - so much so that the choir organised a fantastic trip to Prague later that year!
