The Les épopées festival launches its second edition: discover the program

In her house, in Sens, next to her harpsichord, Claire Lefilliâtre, singer and co-creator of the Les épopées festival, is about to go to Paris. Three days before the launch of the second edition of the event, she will go there to find a second instrument, on loan from the Matheus ensemble.

Essential items for this series of concerts dedicated to early music. This will take place from August 5 to 14 in Jovinien and Sénonais.

“We welcomed nearly 650 people throughout the festival last year,” rejoices the soprano. An additional concert is organized this year, but the spirit of the first edition has been retained. “With Stéphane Fuget, my companion, we wanted to put a group of young talents back in the spotlight. Pierre Cussac and Agathe Peyrat, Friday August 12″.

A baroque and itinerant festival to discover in August in Yonne

Finally, the couple wanted an artist with “true individuality”. It is Cyril Auvity who will perform on Wednesday August 9 in the church of Gron. “He will also come for a masterclass within the academy”, details the artist.
The project is supported by the ensemble Les épopées. It is financially supported by the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs, the region, the department, as well as the various host municipalities.

An academy for young artists

At the same time as the festival, an academy dedicated to early music will indeed be offered to young musicians. Violinists, organists, but also singers will come to perfect their practice. “We want to pass on our work”, explains Claire Lefilliâtre. The training will take place from August 6 to 14, within the medico-educational institute of Saint-Julien-du-Sault. About thirty students from France, Poland, Italy or Belgium will be welcomed there. Every evening, a bus will allow them to attend the concerts of the festival. For residents of the area, baroque dance classes will also be offered free of charge on Wednesday August 10, in Saint-Julien-du-Sault, between 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m., upon registration.
