The Symphony Chorus

A great symphonic chorus in Paris

The 180 singers of the symphony chorus are passionate and experienced amateur musicians. Fine connoisseurs of the choral repertoire, they dedicate a large part of their free time to living a formidable musical adventure by singing under the baton of the greatest conductors!

The symphony chorus consists of the main chorus, a chamber choir and an academy.

The Youth Choir

For 15-18 year olds

A youth choir composed of about sixty secondary school students, who come together to sing under the baton of renowned conductors! Alone or together with the Adult Chorus and the Orchestre de Paris, this choir offers young teenagers, who already have a very good musical experience, the opportunity to follow a pedagogical and artistic path to excellence.

The Children's Choir

For 9-14 year olds

The principle of this children's choir is unique: to offer children from CM1 to the third grade the opportunity to sing under the baton of the greatest conductors, and to take part in a demanding training course during their free time.

Lionel Sow

Chorusmaster

Since 2011, when Lionel Sow took over running the Orchestre de Paris Chorus, he has developed a major training project in which pedagogy plays a pivotal role. His desire is not only to provide the Orchestre de Paris with a chorus capable of singing the choral repertoire with passion and talent, but also to enable young singers to be trained in a demanding environment. An academy, a chamber choir, a children's choir and a youth choir have been created between 2012 and 2015.

Before his arrival at the Orchestre de Paris, Lionel Sow successively conducted the Maîtrise des petits chanteurs de Saint-Christophe de Javel, the vocal ensemble les Temperamens and the Maîtrise de Notre Dame de Paris.

In 2017, Lionel Sow joined the Voice and Choral Conducting Department of the Lyon Conservatoire (CNSM). He also regularly collaborates as a guest chorusmaster for professional orchestras and choirs in France and abroad.

Lionel Sow was made Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres in January 2011.
