TOURS

Enjoy our stay and visit Paris.

Tours are guided by volunteers in love with Paris and its museums. The proceeds are paid in full to research on mental disorders. 

Housing

The good news is that The Madeleine and The Châtelet are right in the centre of Paris and there is no shortage of hotels

The other good news is that for tighter budgets there are youth hostels (also in the centre) such as 

Adveniat (Champs-Elysées), Mije (Marais) and others.

And the third good news is that you can opt to stay for free at a Parisian’s home. This is both economical and an opportunity to meet other singers or those who work behind the scenes.

Who says Parisians are not welcoming?

MEALS

Meals are a serious subject: let’s talk about them.

To continue the adventure, meet around a meal and a glass of wine is always a good idea.

That’s why we are booking tables in selected establishments, with schedules that can be adapted to our program, for you to enjoy the joyful company of the other choristers, and at reasonable prices. Don’t forget to reserve.
