Created in 1993, Les Arts George V (LAGV) is an independent French 1901 not-for-profit association, administered by a volunteer board of directors. Located on the prestigious Avenue George V just off the Champs Elysées, our mission is to promote and produce musical and artistic events at The American Cathedral in Paris.
LAGV has two principal functions:
LAGV also provides financial support to the Paris Choral Society, an impressive amateur choir that has been producing major choral works at the American Cathedral for the past 20 years. Both the Cathedral Choir and the Paris Choral Society are directed by Zach Ullery, the American Cathedral’s Canon for Music and choirmaster.
Working toward the future, LAGV is devoting its time and energy to making the American Cathedral a major fixture on the Paris cultural map. It is our hope that the Cathedral will be seen as a place where music flourishes, where young musicians and artists can perform, perhaps even launch their careers, and as a meeting place for the French and the American communities in Paris.
