Comme Bach!

Chamber choir Les Éléments

Founded in Toulouse in 1997 by Joël Suhubiette, the Chamber choir Les Éléments is a major player on the French choral scene. Initially a tenor with Les Arts Florissants and Philippe Herreweghe’s La Chapelle Royale – Collegium Vocale Gent, Suhubiette then turned to conducting. Today, Les Éléments and their conductor perform all over the world, in the service of their mission: outreach, transmission and sharing. They offer us a vast anthology of German vocal music. Bon voyage!
