The Grand Show of 1000 Chorists!
The nights of 9th and 10th of August 2019, revived the memory of our Legend Charles Aznavour when a wall of 1000 chorists stood proudly on the stage of Victory Palace in Cannes and sang a bunch of his unforgettable songs. French renowned artists JENIFER and MICHAEL GREGORIO joined The 1000 Chorists on stage for a unique tribute to Mr. Charles AZNAVOUR.
The event was under the direction of Jacky Locks, Marc-André Caron, Guylaine Fournier, Maryline Laplagne and Florian Martinet, in partnership with the City of Cannes and The Union of Armenians of Cannes and Surroundings, under the chairmanship of Nicolas and Kristina Aznavour, and in support of Aznavour Foundation.
