It is a start to the year 2023 which promises to be rich for the conservatory with municipal influence (CRC). Xavier Canin, the director, talks about the two major events to come.
This Friday, January 27, the conservatory joins the 10th Nuit des conservatoires, a national event. What is the program at Pamiers?
We are very happy to participate in this national face-to-face event for the second year. During our first participation, Covid obliges, our production was carried out in the form of videos centralized by Conservatoires de France and broadcast on a YouTube channel. This year, we are going to welcome the public to our establishment, make people discover what is happening within our walls and why not, encourage vocations. All spaces will be occupied. The string orchestra will be in concert in the auditorium at 8 p.m., between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. sketches will be played by students from different cycles. While the pupils of cycles 3 in dance will give some demonstrations, from 8:30 p.m. Showcase of the CRC and the city of Pamiers since the middle of the 18th century, the Philharmonic society, our large orchestra, will also be in concert invited by the city of Calmont in Haute-Garonne where one of our musicians is from.
Another highlight of this beginning of the year, the first meeting of trombonists from Ariège, on February 4 and 5, at the Salle Fernan…
This type of meeting takes place regularly between instruments. Our guitarists were recently at the regional guitar meetings in Toulouse. On the initiative of our trombone teacher, in order to enhance the class of our conservatory, we have, with the help of the Musical Federation of Ariège, wished to invite other musicians, students or not, amateurs or professionals of the Ariège to share a weekend around their instrument.
Have you chosen an exceptional sponsor for your event?
Indeed, it is Damien Galy, a former student of our conservatory who accepted despite his artistic obligations to sponsor this edition. Symbolically, it was important to us to welcome to his home, in Pamiers, Damien, one of the musicians who is pursuing a very fine career in the process of professionalization within the prestigious CNSM of Lyon.
What program for this premiere?
This meeting will be punctuated by two public concerts. Saturday February 4 at 5 p.m., concert by the large ephemeral trombone ensemble, accompanied by the CRC’s current music ensemble and with the participation of the Tarn quartet “Les Brass Cassés”. On Sunday February 5, at 3 p.m., the Philharmonic Society will accompany the professional trombonists who have come to supervise the event. Access to our events is free and free, within the limits of the venue’s capacity.
