The musical program of the two concerts (15/02/19 & 16/02/19) :

« THEOPHANES THE GREEK »

One of a kind musical tribute to the great religious iconographer composed by Savvas Karatzias. A musical pilgrimage that follows and reflects in sounds the life of Russian iconography founder Theophanes who was also the teacher of the most important Russian iconographer (Saint) Andrei Rublev.  

« La Nuit Dévoilée » 

Compositions of the 20th and 21st-century (Joby Talbot, Meredith Monk, Francis Poulenc, Edvard Grieg, Grete Pedersen...) with contrasting styles to come together in harmony. The artistic director, Loïc Pierre, invented a different kind of scenography and sound spatialization to immerse the audience more fully into the choral performance. Everything beats in time, and the singers fall in step with one another, languages and harmonies are fused.
