Warning: 2020 program awaiting confirmation! (Program 2019 below).
Concept: the festival is dedicated to vocal groups performing choral contemporaneous song and choral, French or foreign songs, pop, rock, jazz, gospel… The sets will combine both vocal and choreographed dance & movement whilst accentuating the use of space in order to showcase the various dynamic vocal groups to the best of their ability.
Performances can be either a cappella or with musical (Ex. soundtrack, piano, musicians, beat box)
Choirs: non-professional or semi-professional – Mixed choirs, Men choirs, Women Choirs as well as Youth and Young choirs
On the initiative of Marie-Françoise Grasset, the choral conductor and Artistic & Music Director, and her association “Accords d’Air”, here is the 2020 edition of the “Mouv’ton chœur” festival, dedicated to lyrical and semi-professional choirs and orchestras rocked by music, popular song on a choreographic background.
Marie-Françoise Grasset confirms her desire to share everything she gives to her choristers and singers on this new adventure and this event that is waiting for you.
It reminds us that by its “popular” side, the choral song carries values and friendliness is addressed to all the singers: novice, initiated or professional. Indeed, before “knowing” how to sing, one must “love” to sing and share it.
Come and show off your choral & musical talent by showcasing in two or three concerts before a warm & generous audience in the Savoie region.
Share your happiness of singing and move in music with other groups.
Come and experience this great Festival in Savoie.
