Building on the success of their bicentenary concerts, the Caisses d'Epargne are teaming up with Radio Classique for a series of concerts held throughout France.
This new The Grand Radio Classique/Caisse d'Epargne Concerts project will comprise a selection of outstanding concerts, the choice of a regionally-based orchestra, and the creation of links with the Women of Talent and Talent & Cellos initiatives.
Two hundred guests – chiefly customers, partners, and members of the general public – will be invited to attend each of these exceptional concerts held in prestigious venues located in the different French regions. Six of the guests will be offered ‘premium’ access, allowing them to enjoy the unique experience of touring the backstage parts of the opera house and meeting the conductor. The concerts will be supported by advertising campaigns and broadcast live on Radio Classique.
Two initiatives have been organized for the benefit of young people at each concert: ten tickets will be given to members of an association giving young people access to musical instruments, and invitations will be extended to ten young students from local music academies.
The Caisse d'Epargne Ile-de-France inaugurated the first concert evening on December 20 at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris for the opening night of the Radio Classique Christmas Concert performed by the symphony orchestra of the French republican guards.
