Les Choristes

My daughter and I have been watching this French film Les Choriste. It's a touching story of a group of wayward orphans and a supervisor's attempt to reach out to them through song. The film is captivating and the singing moving, especially that of the lead singer, Jean Baptiste Maunier. Listen to these two songs that were sung by the original choir Les Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Marc.

This next song, Cerf-Volant, my daughter knows it all too well because her school's choir sang at their school choral festival and as guest performers at another choral festival.

Watching the movie ignited bits of rusty French I took as a teenager in school. :)
