Lille 2015

In the Summer of 2015, the Combined Choirs travelled to the French city of Lille for a short tour.

On Saturday 4 July they gave a concert in Lille Cathedral as part of the national event La Nuit des Eglises. On the morning of Sunday 5 July the Combined Choirs sang mass in the ancient church of St Catherine de Lille.

When not singing, the Choirs made sure to enjoy the cultural offerings of Lille. The choristers spent a sunny morning at Lille Zoo, while some choral scholars visited the Palais des Beaux-Arts. The trip came at the close of the academic year, and we owe our thanks to all those who supported us throughout the tour.
