Concert visits

The concert visits are organised in cooperation with MUSICANCY from May until September. They give visitors an opportunity to visit the chateau or the park and witness a unique classical concert. On every occasion free reign is given to promising young artists or artists that are already well-established internationally.

Artists are invited to come up with programmes which are close to their heart and which are a bit off the beaten track. The programme also leaves room for creativity and improvisation.

MUSICANCY has already offered the audience at Ancy-le-Franc two world premieres.

The concept of these concert visits is truly original and greatly enjoyed by the audiences. Artists such as Zhu Xiao Mei, Alexandre Tharaud, Jean-François Zygel, le Quatuor Modigliani, Trio Wanderer, Jay Gottlieb, Némanja Radulovic, Roger Muraro, Jacky Terrasson, Karol Beffa, Café Zimmermann, Ludmila Berlinskaïa, and many others have already performed at Ancy-le-Franc.

Since the start in 2004, more than 20 000 people have enjoyed the Musicancy festival and more than 400 musiciens have played in Ancy le Franc.

In 2018 the 15th season of MUSICANCY will celebrate various programmes and offer high quality musical performances ! 2018 is the celebration of the centenary of the death of the famous composer Dubussy, each concert will mark this anniversary with a special dedicate to this great subtle French composer.
A lot of surprises and an excellent programme are in store for us!
