[Concert] "La Voce della Luna" by Erik Truffaz and the Emelthée Ensemble

Saturday June 16 at 8:30PM
Eglise Saint Michel, Cassis

Erik Truffaz is a compelling artist who has always been in search of a new horizons to explore. Thoroughly attached to music, he is constantly looking for the other : other musicians, other sounds, other tones, other inspirations. His intention to immerse himself in Medieval music has been on his mind for a long time. Gregorian chants fascinate him, and most especially Pérotin, a 12th-century pioneer composer. What interested him was the link with contemporary music. In this light, he wrote a piece for trumpet and voice and will be accompanied by the Emelthée Ensemble from the Opéra de Lyon for five exceptional acoustic concerts, which will each take place in different abbeys and churches of the Metropole.

This piece was conceived during Erik Truffaz's residency at the Camargo Foundation from Octobre 9 to Octobre 17, 2017 in partnership with Marseille Jazz des 5 continents.

[Announcement] The Cultural Diaspora Program Residents Announced

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

From May 28 to June 25, 2018
Residency program conceived by playwrights and theatre practitioners Chuck Mike and Carlyle Brown

The Camargo Foundation, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation, is excited to announce a four-week residency program for four mid-career/established African-American and four African playwrights.

In selecting the participants, the Camargo Foundation worked with a panel composed of internationally recognized reviewers from the United States, the African continent, and Europe. The members of the jury panel adopted the widest possible definition of "playwright" to recognize the plurality of ways in which contemporary theater is made.
