Festival de Saint-Denis
- Festival de Saint-Denis
The Festival de Saint-Denis is once again setting the bar very high from 2 to 27 June 2023!
For more than 50 years now, each year, as summer approaches, the Classical Music Festival has welcomed the greatest classical ensembles as well as the talents of tomorrow to the heart of the architectural heritage of Saint-Denis.
The basilica of Saint-Denis, the last resting place of the kings and queens of France, welcomes the greatest conductors and international orchestras as well as all the musical formations of Radio France and the Orchestre national d'Île-de-France for large-scale, high-quality classical, symphonic** and choral concerts. Also on the programme are creations, recitals and chamber music concerts in the magnificent setting of the Maison d'Éducation de la Légion d'Honneur, located close to the basilica.
This year, renowned orchestras and musicians from the world of classical music will perform alongside artists from more contemporary music styles, such as the jazzy Gregory Porter who pays tribute to Nat King Cole on the 15th of June.
The 2023 edition of the Saint-Denis Festival features 11 concerts, including :
- 4 June 2023: **The Jupiter Ensemble presents works from the 17th and 18th centuries.
- 8 June 2023: Beethoven's 5th led by Andris Nelsons, one of today's leading conductors and current Music Director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.
- 25 June 2023: Marie-Laure Garnier, Classical Music Victory in 2021. Célia Oneto Bensaid is her piano partner.
The festival de Saint-Denis, with its programme of major and more intimate works by composers from all over the world, has gained international recognition. The organisers also offer spectators the possibility of donating tickets to beneficiaries of local associations through an online solidarity ticketing service.
