Prélude Concert

Lyon Opera Chorus

  • Basilique Saint-Bonaventure
  • 1 hour

The Lyon Opera Chorus will mark the start of the new season with a concert of sacred music from all over the world.

  • 16:00


When the Russian Orthodox tradition embodied by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov meets Ola Gjeilo’s Norway, and Morten Lauridsen and Eric Whitacre’s America comes face-to-face with the traditional songs of South Africa, you can be sure that the unaccompanied (a cappella) voices of the chorus plan to take us on a spiritual , as well as musical, journey.
