In France we
provide support to affiliated choirs, schools and organisations of all denominations and in all parts of
the country, although non-affiliates are welcome at our events. A committee meets four times a year, and there are
regular meetings with the RSCM in the UK.
We will be
organising events such as singing and training days in different parts of France, and will eventually have an
annual Choral Festival.
Some of the
churches within our group are following the Voice for Life scheme. For the Bronze and Silver medals we can choose
to follow the syllabus of RSCM UK or RSCM NW Europe. These
are available to both junior and adult singers.
