Les Voix du Choeur
- “Les Voix du Chœur » (VDC) is a Moroccan choir, gathering nearly 30 choir singers that come from very different backgrounds but that share the passion for choral music.
Lying between tradition and modernity, the VDC interprets a rich repertoire that includes Classical, Jazz, Gospel, Pop and revisited Moroccan music.
The journey of the VDC has always been driven by the will to continuously research and explore musical styles whilst still appreciating the beauty of singing universal masterpieces.
What really makes VDC different is their capacity to soak in and rework the musical heritage of Morocco, revamping it into original polyphonic creations, easily traveling the lands and seas and reaching the hearts of music lovers.
VDC efforts are solely dedicated to making every performance an inspirational moment of harmony and sharing that will touch the depths of your soul and lift your spirits!
The VDC journey : Most of the members have taken part in previous vocal groups or concerts led by renown directors such as Jalila Bennani (Chœur National, Chœur des Trois Cultures, Polyphonia..), Yves Parmentier et Oleg Reztkine (Chœur National), Michel Piquemal, Didier Lockwood, Nayer Nagui, Jean Claude Casadesus, Laurent Couson (chœur des Trois Cultures) and Louis Perraudin (chorale de Rabat).
Likewise, they also count in several contributions to musical projects led by Jean Michel Jarre (Water of Life, 2005), Ennio Morricone (Mawazine, 2008) or Quincy Jones & Red-One (Tomorrow/Bokra ‘ An Anthem for Peace”, 2011).
The last VDC international journey dates back to August, when the VDC members partook in the international festival “Choralies 2016”, held in Vaison-la-Romaine (France). The choir made a memorable performance in St Duenin Chapel, singing some of the most known masterpieces of the Moroccan traditional and sacred repertoire.
