Chants libres

Saturday 29th June 2024 - morning and afternoon - Albert (a musical tour through the town)

For this 3rd edition of “Chants libres”, a season of choral singing created by the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation, the Aedes ensemble invites you to discover the heritage of the Somme department through music! A rich program including public concerts in markets, heritage sites, as well as concerts in health establishments.

This program will take you to the Manufacture Cosserat, a former jewel in the history of Amiens’ textile industry, to Albert’s downtown and to the park of Saint-Riquier Abbey. Follow us in this journey through a choice of varied music.

The ensemble, in tutti or as a vocal quartet, will meet the public at the Albert market and perform at various venues in the town. In the afternoon, we will perform at a retirement home.

From Michel Legrand to Francis Poulenc, via Charles Trenet, Philip Glass, Billy Joel… the program entitled “Sur un air de vacances” has been imagined as a summer correspondence, in the form of postcards. A rich program from French chanson to traditional song, from a cappella classics to jazz standards.
