Insula orchestra comes together with accentus for its 30th birthday, associating the unique liveliness of period instruments to the much-deserved reputation of the choir. Felix Mendelssohn will be in the spotlight as favourite composer of both ensembles, through grand choral works. And to celebrate its anniversary, accentus will surprise you with several a cappella treasures!
The 16th of March, at 8 p.m., the concert will be filmed from La Philharmonie de Paris, and broadcast in live on France Musique and Arte Concert.
