♫♫ 2024 BRITTANY TOUR! ♫♫
The King’s Counterpoint is excited to announce that in July, 2024, we will be embarking on a trip to France, where we will perform a series of concerts at churches and cathedrals throughout the region.
But we need YOUR help to make it happen!
As a small regional non-profit, donor support is vital to KCP’s success. Our Directors and Board take no payment for their time and efforts, and instead choose to focus the organization’s resources on opportunities for musical and cultural enrichment for our vocalists such as Brittany, 2024.
If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation or to sponsor
a vocalist’s cost or any portion of this wonderful opportunity,
just visit our SUPPORT page or scan the QC code provided
to donate today!
The choir’s ‘home base’ for the trip will be the city of Quimper, located
at the crossroads of the Steir and the Odet rivers, and home of the
incredible Saint-Corentin cathedral (which took three centuries to build!).
From there, the choir will venture out to hold concerts in churches
around the region:
Pont-l'Abbé - Nestled at the bottom of the estuary, it has been labeled
“The Little Town of Character” and has been described as “the most
Breton town” of Lower Brittany. The castle, inhabited bridge that gave
the town its name, and the merchants’ residences evoke its proud history.
Locronan - The Celts chose this site to create a nemeton, a sacred
pathway with stations symbolizing the 12 months of the year. In the
6th century, St. Ronan Christianized the site and the town was born,
increasing in wealth and beauty from the 14th century thanks to weaving
La Forêt-Fouesnant – This beautiful seaside town was first mentioned
in writing in the 11th century, and grew in importance during the
Middle Ages, becoming a popular trading post for the region. The Kerleven
cairn testifies to an occupation of the territory from the Neolithic period.
THANK YOU for supporting your friends in The King’s Counterpoint by attending this season’s Concerts!
