Alliance Members can join the French Choir CHANTEFIQUE
. Af membership required.
CHANTEFIQUE, the Alliance Francaise choral, and Brisbane's only French-singing choir, was established 5½ years ago and comprises approximately 30 people of all ages and varying abilities in speaking French. We are a friendly group , united by our love of music and our affection for French culture. We sing at various events such as La Fete de la Musique, Bastille Day celebrations, the Beaujoulais arrival and of course Christmas festivites and our current repertoire embraces a diverse range of French classical ballads through to modern favourites.
We rehearse every Friday at the Alliance from 3:00pm to 5:00pm after which we socialise with a glass of wine and nibbles and by sociable dinners from time to time. We are always keen to welcome new members, especially male voices to provide musical balance to the choir.
Chantefique had a very busy July. On Friday 12th we were invited to sing the French and Australian anthems at a breakfast at the SOFITEL Hotel for members of the French & Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The following Sunday 14th July , was Bastille Day and we were honoured to be invited to take part in the celebrations in Park Road, Milton. We sang 2 sessions from our electric repertoire to an enthusiastic audience and have been asked to consider being involved again next year.
