Artists

Orchestra: Orchestra Hélios

Youth, ambition, eclecticism: the Helios orchestra's mission is to integrate young musicians into the world of work through orchestral practice.

As an associative orchestra, created by the will of its artistic director Paul Savalle, it allows young graduates, or those in the process of graduation, to perfect their skills with orchestra musicians and experienced conductors, under optimal working conditions.

Founded in 2014, the Hélios orchestra has gradually established itself in the French orchestral landscape. It offers a wide range of programmes, from baroque to contemporary music. Its repertoire is both symphonic and choral, thanks to the involvement of the local choirs. The orchestra attaches great importance to this network: the association of the orchestra and the departmental and regional choirs is essential in its artistic approach. The collaboration of different conductors is also an essential part of the project, which allows musicians to approach a rich and varied repertoire and broaden their range of performances.

Choir: Tempestuoso choir
Conductor: Dunand, Jean Charles
Conductor: Cabanes, Matthieu
Ensemble: Hélios Éphémère

    Dec 2018

    it was just beyond our expectations. a spectacle during 1.5 hours (excluding the time to enter) with a meticulously chosen pieces of music embracing Handel, Bach, unknown composers of traditional Xmas tunes. All of the soloists, the tenor, sopranos, and the baryton were at the peak of their performance. As did the orchestra and their conductor! This amazing team surprised us all with the final 'we wish you a merry christmas' performance, and then 2 'BIS'es of ' 'Halalujah'… thanks heaps!
