René Hémon singsChant pour le retour de la Grande Armée (Méhul)

René Hémon started his career in the 1960s as an opera and operetta tenor with some incursions into Grand Opéra with works such as Guillaume Tell, made possible since 1960 by Tony Poncet. Later, he set up a company organizing concerts in Paris, and the North of France. He continued that activity until his death in May 2002. The photo of La Juive is very rare.
