Cantabile - The ACFAA Choir 

Our Association is proud of our fifty strong Anglo French Dutch Choir which rehearses on Wednesdays nearly every week between September and June .During this time, the choir rehearses a varied repertoire of classical and modern classical music under the charismatic leadership of Simon Kenworthy, and accompanied by Jonathan Smalley. Concerts are given at various times during the year.
New members in all sections are welcome but must be prepared to give weekly rehearsals priority in order that the high level of performance is maintained. Absences cannot sometimes be avoided, but should be notified in advance. Teaching is done in both French and English.
This year’s opening evening will be on Wednesday 5th September from 7.30 pm , in the room above the Tourist Office in Eymet , when memberships will be paid for, choir subscriptions collected and music distributed .
