PAS-DE-CALAIS NORTH REGIONAL CHOIR
The Choeur Régional Nord – Pas-de-Calais was established in 1981 by Domaine Musiques Région Nord/Pas-de-Calais, with the double aim of collaborating with the orchestras and instrumental ensembles of the region and providing a high level of performance for singers eager to enrich their musical experience. Since its foundation Jean Bacquet has served as artistic director, a position shared for some years with Eric Deltour.
The choir today has an average membership of some 120 experienced amateur singers, able to tackle a wide repertoire, ranging from Bach to the contemporary. The choir has appeared with leading orchestras and has been directed by distinguished conductors, including Jean-Claude Casadesus, Jean-Claude Malgoire, Maxim Shostakovitch, Christof Spering, Cyril Diederich, Philip Picket and Giuliano Carella.
