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.

Beautiful music in a lovely venue

We've previously attended Christmas concerts at Notre Dame, La Madeleine and St. Chapelle. St. Chapelle, with its stained glass, is the most beautiful venue. But last night's concert at St. Sulpice, with its massive choir, produced the most beautiful music. We paid more to be in the first 10 rows, and it was well worth the money to be able to clearly hear the soloists in this cavernous church. A wonderful evening!
