Children’s Art Foundation streams The Chorus in Bellas Artes


By Hannah McCurley

The Children’s Art Foundation is showing the film The Chorus (Les Choristes, 2004) this Sunday, March 11 in in the Bellas Artes auditorium, along with a wine reception and silent auction benefiting the Foundation. The film will be streamed after the silent auction at 5pm.

An art film shown at the Berlin film festival in 2004, The Chorus enhances the importance of art in children’s lives to enlighten their childhood and also their future.

The Chorus, directed by French producer and musician Christophe Barratier, is a drama inspired by the 1947 film A Cage of Nightingales (La Cage aux Rossignols), directed by Jean Drévill. It narrates the childhood memories of Pierre Morhange (Jacques Perrin) when he attended a dreary boarding school. During this period, little Pierre has the fortune to encounter Clément Mathieu (Gérard Jugnot), the new music teacher who inspires Pierre’s life by teaching him the hidden musical talents that he has while attempting to change the reactionary policies of the school run by the strict headmaster Rachin (Francois Berléand).

Don’t miss an evening filled with fun, marvelous artwork, and a beautiful film with music from Bruno Coulais (Coraline, The Crimson Rivers).
