THE Southend Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs joined forces last week with a wonderful children’s choir from Montreal, Canada.
The French speaking choir, Les Petits Chanteurs du Mont Royal stayed in Southend as part of a two-week European concert tour, during which time they performed in Belgium, France, London, Cambridge, Brentwood and Southend.
Thirty young singers aged 12 – 18, who sing the services weekly at St Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal, were on their first visit to the UK. The choir hosted 40 singers from the Southend Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs last year as part of the Southend singers Canadian Tour, and they are delighted to welcome their Canadian friends to Southend. The concert took place at St Augustine’s Church.
