Renaissance Sings Music Festival

Cultural, Concert, Singing/Song in Saint-Tropez
  • A mini music festival to launch the cultural season in Saint-Tropez, the 2nd edition of "La Renaissance chante" presents three free concerts given by regional groups on 3, 4 and 5 March at the Renaissance.

  • On the programme:
    "Jean Jacques Bortolai and his orchestra interpret Aznavour and Salvador", Friday 3 March at 7 pm.
    A tribute to two French singers who at first glance may seem far apart but who have one thing in common: jazz music.
    Indeed, both singers have left us a repertoire tinged with jazz and some immortal songs.
    Jean-Jacques Bortolai and his orchestra will make you rediscover immortal themes such as "le blues du dentiste, la trompette d'occasion, Syracuse..." by Henri Salvador...

    "Trio Brassens swingue", Saturday 4 March at 7pm
    "He looks like Stalin, Orson Wells, a Calabrian lumberjack, a Visigoth and has a pair of moustaches!
    Filipe Loir, guitarist and singer, Michel Barbier, guitarist, and Michel Cerny, double bass player, cover in their own way the standards of Georges Brassens, the most censored author of the French scene.
    Not devoid of humour, this swinging tour de chant highlights the poetic texts and immortal melodies, which the three artists invite you to sing along to.
    A pure moment of shared happiness!

    "A Capella, a musical walk through the polyphonic repertoire of the Southern Alps", by the Corou de Berra troupe, Sunday 5 March at 3 pm
    The Southern Alps are a melting pot of strong, deep-rooted, living cultures. Inhabited since the dawn of time, these mountains that come to "bathe their feet in the sea" are a place of permanent passage and exchange, a land of high civilisation. Polyphonic singing is one of the riches of this proud, contemporary and authentic heritage.
    The Corou de Berra is a mixed polyphonic choir created in 1986. After more than thirty-five years of activity, hundreds of concerts, 13 CDs and numerous creations, the Corou de Berra has become the reference in Alpine polyphonic singing.
    The repertoire of the Corou de Berra is in perpetual evolution, as a living tradition should be. It ranges from traditional Mediterranean Alpine songs in their purest expression to the most unexpected contemporary creations. Music that never stands still, performed with all the vivacity required by singers in full possession of their culture and their art.
