William Christie, Paul Agnew and Les Arts Florissants wish you a happy and flourishing year 2022!
"Dear friends, we wish you all a beautiful and happy year 2022!
For two years now, we have been living through a situation that unfortunately continues to affect us collectively. But we are full of hope: music, like the nature we can observe every day, keeps blooming again, and we are looking forward to sharing with you this passion that drives us, in the concert halls as well as in gardens - and of course, wherever you are thanks to the internet!
This year will of course be a great year of music, with more than 30 concert and opera programs already scheduled, for nearly 100 performances.But it will also be a year of discovery - in Thiré, where the planting of William Christie's gardens continues, and where we plan to welcome more and more artists in residence as well as visitors. And finally, a year of transmission to future generations, with the launch of the 11th edition of Le Jardin des Voix, our academy for young singers whose 20th anniversary we are currently celebrating. We look forward to sharing with you all these exciting projects!
Once again, we wish you all the best for this new year; thank you for being by our side to make 2022 a flourishing year!"
