FESTIVAL "MINES EN CHOEURS" CHOEUR " LES VOIX DE L'EST"
FESTIVAL "MINES EN CHOEURS"                                                  CHOEUR " LES VOIX DE L'EST"  

 

 

 

The male choir "LesVoix de L’Est" was founded in 2014.
It consists of a number of singers from different musical backgrounds and the musical director is André KOGOVSEK.
The choir was founded by migrant workers who came from the south east of Europe, to work in the mines of Lorraine. The songs and tradition of choral music that they brought  has been a great source of comfort and solidarity to them in their new homeland. The choir, which is now mainly composed of their descendants continues this inherited tradition.
The geographical location of the small town of Aumetz is an example of the importance and role of the mining industry for the survival of these immigrants.
The choir sings a capella in four parts in the following  register  tenor 1, tenor 2, baritone and bass.
They sing and  interpret songs of the world, traditional and popular, including Slovenian, Croatian, Russian, Italian, English & French, at concerts and international festivals.
