Rollo Dilworth in France 2013

KIconcerts is delighted to be working with Rollo Dilworth once again to stage fine choirs internationally, this time in France

Today he invited choirs to consider joining him in France for the 2013 festival which will highlight the works of both North American and French composers, including Eleanor Daley, Rollo Dilworth, Maurice Durufle, Morten Lauridsen, Donald Patriquin and Francis Poulenc.

While in France, Rollo is creating opportunities to meet and collaborate with local choral ensembles. The festival includes performance options in Lynon and in the Normandy region paying tribute to fallen soldiers. Individual concerts are also arranged for those choirs who wish them.

The KI team has proudly presented Rollo Dilworth in China, Italy and Australia and this year he will be leading a festival in Canterbury and Southwark Cathedrals a month prior to the London Olympic Games.

The directors and choristers that have worked under his direction in the past have been thrilled to work with the composer (both in the combined rehearsal setting and in individual choir settings as well), been excited by his musicianship and of his innate abilities as a world class music educator.

France is a superb performance destination both for custom tours and in a festival setting such as this. We rehearse in the charming city of Lyon where we perform with a local youth choir, there are options for individual concerts and of course time for sightseeing. In Paris we perform as the Gala Festival Choir, perform individually if desired, tour the Louvre, stroll the Champ de Elysees, ascend the Eifel Tower, tour Montmartre experiencing all aspects of this romantic city of fashion and high culture. Extension tours are offered to visit Normandy and honor our fallen heroes with an option to perform in the North of France as well.

Join us in France
