Choeur et Mouvement [France]

Choeur et Mouvement music at the freemasons' hallThis young, enigmatic choir brought their spirited tones to the evocative surroundings of one of the city’s most historic buildings, Freemasons’ Hall.

The building on Tuckey Street has served as the Provincial Grand Lodge of the Munster Freemasons since 1844, and its internal design has remained true to its origins in its layout and historic furnishings.

Directed by choirmaster Brigitte Chambard and accompanied on piano by Bertrand Ravalard, this young choir’s repertoire includes traditional, variety and memory songs. Since 2009 the choir has performed internationally in cities including London, Prague, Quebec, Rome, and on the island of Corsica.
