Through the many concerts performed the world over, the Maîtrise des Hauts de France strives to convey its continuous search for quality in the performance of the polyphonic repertoire devoted to children’s voices.
The vocal quality acquired by the choir allows it to perform an extensive repertoire of mainly sacred music and harmonized popular songs.
This level of excellence can only be reached with a complete well-being and self-development of the young choristers who, by singing and traveling, find an incomparable source of cultural enrichment and personal accomplishment.
