With such a variety of different venues Paris provides a diverse range of options for a music tour, no matter what style of music you wish to perform. During the warmer summer months the characterful music kiosks in the city’s public parks are ideal for open air concerts where repertoire can be as broad as you wish. There are also historic churches where a choir or ensemble can perform a sacred repertoire. And at Disneyland the in-house performing arts programme provides a wonderful opportunity to combine a visit to the theme park with an exciting public concert.
