performing arts & music / events / MAITRISE DES HAUTS DE FRANCE - 4 CONCERTS IN ONTARIO

La Maîtrise des Hauts de France (“French Boys’ Choir”) is a group of about thirty singers in all regular registers (boy soprano, alto, tenor and bass). These children and young adults come from the town of Lambersart and from the City of Lille area. The vocal quality acquired by the choir allows it to perform an extensive repertoire of mainly sacred music and harmonized popular songs.
The Choir was founded in 1970 by Régis Decool, who remained its director until his passing in 2009.
Jérôme Cupelli took over in 2010. Previously the founding director of the “Petits Chanteurs de Lambres-lez-Douai” and, more recently, director of the boys’ choir of the “Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Douai”, he is now the driving force in the preservation of the soul and identity of the Choir.
Since its creation, the Maîtrise des Hauts de France has performed on a regular basis, during the school breaks, in the area of Lille, in France, in Europe and in North America. The members of our choir have been involved in numerous special events, have sung in the White House, and have participated in the “Pueri Cantores” International Congress in Rome’s Saint Peter Basilica, as well as performed for the American Congress in Washington in the summer of 2013. They are regularly asked to perform for television programs, conventions, competitions and festivals around the world.
This level of excellence can only be reached with a complete well-being and self-development of the young choristers who, by singing and traveling, find an incomparable source of cultural enrichment and personal accomplishment.

This summer, the young choristers will travel in the Great Lakes area of North America. They will present four free concerts in Ontario:
