In 1994, Music Celebrations International, partnering with the United States Department of Defense and Department of the Interior, was recognized as the official tour operator to bring performing ensembles from the United States to France to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of D-Day and the Liberation of France.  MCI clients performed for WWII Veterans on June 6th at the American Cemetery in Coleville, Normandy.  In 2004 and 2014, MCI organized significant tours and events to commemorate the 60th and 70th anniversaries. 

To continue this celebration of the centuries-old Franco-American friendship, and to commemorate another milestone anniversary, Music Celebrations International is pleased to announce the Paris Choral Festival taking place on July 2-9, 2019 (75th Anniversary of D-Day and the Liberation of France) under the artistic direction of Dr. Gary Schwartzhoff. 

Prior to the finale performance, choirs will journey to nearby Normandy for an Independence Day choral remembrance and wreath-laying at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial – site of the June 6th, 1944 Allied Invasion.

The festival will feature works by Dan Forrest, Fauré, and more to honor the occasion, culminating in a grand musical commemoration for the heroes that fought for freedom during the world’s greatest invasion.
