The next RDV will take place on March 6 in the Grand Salon. The musicians in residence and Harriet Hale Woolley scholars will perform a diverse program of classical music, new instrumental and film music compositions and a selection of well-known rock and folk songs.
It’s always a pleasure for them to be able to show you their current work. Members of audience, delighted to (re)discover classical, contemporary, and new works, often stay behind to talk with the musicians. The musicians take great pleasure in these exchanges, always speaking about music and their specific disciplines with great passion.
At the end of the concert, you will be given the opportunity to discover the new exhibition by two artists in residence.
