Director’s note — 2020-2021
Of stars and music
“Okay, Houston, we’ve had a problem here”. It is with these words that Jack Swigert reported the explosion that would compromise Apollo 13’s space mission in 1970.
The last six months have shown that the problem is now here on Earth with us. We are of course talking about the pandemic which has transformed our way of living and interacting with one another, but also about climate change, of which the long-term consequences would be utterly dramatic. The day-to-day life in 2020 is effectively very different of that of 1970.
And yet, space remains infinite, both in real life and in imagination. And as long as there are stars and music, hope may not be lost just yet. Hope is all we need in order to continue performing and exploring the musical universe.
Dear friends, we are happy to finally announce our 2020-2021 season. In addition to our four regular in-person concerts, we will also offer a digital program which will allow you to discover new aspects of our repertoire.
Just like our astronaut clad in his spatial suit, we invite you to a trip through stars and music. Stand-by, as we will soon meet for the launch.
