Les Milles musicaux are celebrating their tenth anniversary this year. To celebrate the event, the organizers have developed a “hand-tailored” musical program, as Maxence Pilchen, artistic advisor for the association, explains. Indeed, the festival’s programming perfectly reflects the spirit of “Les Milles”, namely “high quality, with internationally renowned artists, and open to all”, adds the musician.

A mobile carillon from Douai

The first concert of the festival was held on Friday, July 5, with the Résonance ensemble. The voice of countertenor Samuel Cattiau, accompanied by guitarist Thomas Maillet and cellist Matthieu Saglio, resonated through the Kermario alignments in Carnac, to the delight of the audience. On Saturday, July 6, Stefano Colletti, master carillonneur, from Douai, enchanted the port of La Trinité-sur-Mer and Carnac with two open-air concerts. The musician presented the instrument of “4 tons and composed of 53 bells”. “There are only seventeen mobile carillons left in the world” confirms Stefano Colletti. “They are also an integral part of the musical culture of Flanders, the city of Douai being the owner of this one”, he concludes.

The rest of the festivities

This Tuesday, July 9, starting at 9 p.m., Lévon Minassian and his ensemble will perform at the Saint-Cornély church in Carnac. Master of the duduk, a traditional Armenian musical instrument, Lévon Minassian will transport the audience to a timeless sphere. To conclude the festival, the grand musical evening of the tenth anniversary will take place on Thursday, July 11, starting at 9 p.m., at the La Vigie cultural space in La Trinité-sur-Mer. The program includes classical music, voice and many surprises.
