Growing up to music: The 'Maîtrise de Radio France' choir

For more than 75 years, the "Maîtrise de Radio France" choir has been training schoolchildren to become classical singers. Andrélia is one of them. She has undergone demanding training, with music theory, piano and singing lessons.

Based in Paris, the choir now has a branch in Bondy, in the north-eastern suburbs of the French capital.
