After two years of planning and preparing, it begins!

Today 21 June, Father’s Day some 24 choristers, 8 staff musicians and 25 parents arrived at Charles de Gaulle Airport outside Paris to begin a summer concert tour centered around Paris.

We were met by Victor Yacoel of Peter’s Way Tours and our tour guide Etienne, and boarded a bus that moved along the beltway of Paris past the great Basilica of Saint Dennis and up into Normandy. Along the route Etienne gave us lots of interesting information about the region, it’s history and people. We have arrived at our hotel in Deauville, The Normandy Barrière and officially began the tour celebrating Father’s Day with the resident tour fathers and a festive meal…..A lovely and peaceful first day.
