Founded in 2009, the Correspondances ensemble brings together, under the direction of harpsicordist and organist Sébastien Daucé, a troupe of singers and instrumentalists specialists in 17th century music.
In 2020, the Correspondances ensemble set up in the Normandy region, and as such developed dissemination and transmission residency projects in the heart of rural areas far from major cultural circuits, the objects of this partnership. As a counterpoint to its concert season, the ensemble now uses crossroads by bicycle to reconstitute, on a small scal, a form of territorial equity in the Normandy region, by broadcasting a small format program, specially created for the opportunity.
In 2021, a nex tour on the Normandy roads will be organized in the Pays d'Ouche. At aech stage, Correspondances will mobilize local actors, and will offer participatory events combining music, heritage discovery and crafts. Baroque music discovery workshops will be offered to families before each performance. The concerts will be followed by a convivial meal shared between the public and the artists. Finally the public will be invited to accompany the musicians by bicycle on their journey between each concert venue.
