Presentation text of the work:

Rediscover the magic of classical music through this concert bringing together the most famous works of the repertoire.

Dynamic and eclectic, the Hélios orchestra has established itself since its consecration in 2014.

Its artistic director, Paul Savalle, promotes the professional integration of young musicians through orchestral practice. Thus, young graduates mingle with orchestral musicians, conductors and experienced soloists, in optimal working conditions.

From baroque music to contemporary music, the programs are varied, the repertoire is both symphonic and choral, the orchestra associating with departmental and regional choirs.

Thanks to the collaboration with different conductors, the musicians approach a very rich repertoire by broadening their palette of interpretation. They all come from major French conservatories, some belonging to a national orchestra.

From the string quartet to the symphony orchestra, via the brass ensemble, the orchestra always expands its audience by modulating its composition. The "strings" formation occurs in the most prestigious churches of Paris, which allows the public to discover a very rich architectural heritage.

Its variable geometry training allows the Hélios orchestra to approach a very wide repertoire with passionate curiosity.

Church of the Madeleine

The parish of La Madeleine wishes to ensure a visible presence in the heart of Paris and to be attentive to our contemporaries. We speak of the base to describe the stone massifs that form the foundation of the church. But this base is also made of living stones made up of associations attentive to the wounded of life such as Ozanam Madeleine, the Espace Formation Informatique. The Foyer de la Madeleine serves more than three hundred meals every day at lunchtime with the aim of encouraging people to meet people who work or spend time in the neighbourhood.
