Rainbow Symphony Orchestra in collaborative concert series

After performing with the combined Rainbow Symphony Cologne at Gay Games VIII, the Paris Rainbow Symphony Orchestra has just completed a series of concerts with the Paris Melo'men choir and the Ensemble Romantica of Torcy (a suburb just east of Paris).

The common feature of the three groups is their director, noted conductor John Dawkins, and these concerts at the historic Oratoire du Louvre were the culmination of a three-year project proposed by Dawkins. It was the first time that RSO collaborated in this way with a non-gay musical group, and members were delighted by the warm welcome they received both from Melo'men and the Ensemble Romantica members.

All three concerts sold out, with over 1600 people enjoying a program made up of:
Auber's La Sirene
Parry's Blest Pair of Sirens
Puccini's Gloria Mass
(Soloists Guillaume Gutierrez, tenor and Frederic Albou, bass-bariton)
For more information about future concerts, see: www.rso.asso.fr and www.melomen.com and www.choraleromantica.free.fr.
