Choral practice in France

AN APPROACH TO CHORAL PRACTICES IN FRANCE – 1999 – 2004

This survey is a collation of surveys carried out in about fifteen regions by the “Missions Voix en Région”. To reach this result, these structures, which have in-depth knowledge of their local territories, worked together to collect and pool information, in liaison with the Ministry of Culture and Communication (Music, Dance, Theatre and Performance Department1 and the French Institute of Choral Art).
For the first time, a collective approach and a homogeneous viewpoint give an overall picture of choral practices in France, at national level.
