France, August 17-24

Sing & make music
that suits the relaxed feel of late summer in the south

‘Fields of Gold” (Sting, 1993) is a strong, seductive and gentle ballad. A perfect support of the late summer atmosphere in Mid-France. 

Up-tempo and styles such as rock, jazz and light classical will be welcome too. 

You will be encouraged to bring in your own favorite repertoire. Arrangements can be made. Perhaps you will be inspired by our playlist on YouTube?
