The Grand Chœur À Cœur Joie de Grenoble, founded in 1947 is a choir of about 70 advanced level amateur singers. The choir regularly collaborates with professional orchestras and soloists. For over 60 years the choir has contributed to the musical life of Grenoble and its region,  giving several concerts a year either accompanied by an orchestra or “a capella”. It has a wide repertoire ranging from well known classical composers to contemporary works, and jazz.
