Singing Holidays

Singing and walking tour in the French Alps

Saturday 29 August – Wednesday 9 September 2020

Join me for 12 delightful days exploring and singing in the magnificent French Alps. Our walking guides are Jo Cresswell and Dave O’Neill (who are both fabulous musicians too). This will be my second triip to France with Jo and Dave, and truly, we had the most most fantastic time. We are based near the UNICEF world heritage listed town of Briancon, in southeastern France near the Italian border. The walking is not difficult, and so spectacular. We will be joined at times with singers from local French choirs.

This tour is a small group (max 13 singers) so please get your deposit in early if you are interested.
