Come along and support this very worthwhile event.

Nieppe is a little rural town of 7500, close to Lille. The choir is like a large family covering all ages from 7 to 77 years. They have no musical barriers so a wide variety of music  for all tastes, but above all they all share a great desire to give their time and musical expertise to the public. Since 1981 many young people have joined the choir and for some it is their children who also now belong - all with the same conductor Pascal Codron at their head. They rehearse every Friday evening in the church of St Martin de Nieppe and cover many genres (Handel, Mozrt, Vivaldi, .... Gospel, French and foreign songs.


They are reguarly seen on Sundays in the church but also cover weddings etc and give outside concerts with all the money raised going to charitable organsiations. Aside from the regular rehearsals they meet in November to celebrate Saint Cecilia - the patron saint of music. At the end of the academic year they leave for a weekend away at many diffeerent destinations.


In April 2016 they celebrated their 35th anniversary with two exceptional concerts which attracted over 1500 people all in aid of "Medecins Solidaires Lille"

Admission is free but there will be a collection at the end - the proceeds all going to Macmillan Cancer Support - a very worthwhile cause.
