Dear friends

I am excited to return to Belle-Île very soon and join you for our New Year Concert. With Jazmin Black Grollemund and Nemanja Ljubinković, we started these concerts in 2014 and they have become a popular way to start a new year. This year's concert features a mix of classical music and traditional Christmas and New Year songs. I have created several arrangements of traditional French, English, Irish and Scottish songs, as well as a song from the Appalachian region. We hope to see you there in large numbers.At this time, I will also be very happy to start rehearsals with the festival choir, the start of our musical journey towards the concerts of the next summer season. The choir will work on the magnificent “German Requiem” by Johannes Brahms, and the rehearsals for the first week, particularly that of January 2, will be open to all! 

The Festival has started cultural action with the Collège Michel Lotte, and you will find out more in this letter. We are also preparing the program for the next summer season – more details will be published soon!

I join the entire Lyrique-en-mer team in wishing you a happy holiday season.
