In 1991, the creation of the accentus choir by Laurence Equilbey revolutionized choral music. To celebrate accentus’ 30th anniversary, Mendelssohn was chosen as the guest of honour, with some of his numerous a cappella vocal pieces and vocal pieces with orchestra. Faithful soloists such as Stanislas de Barbeyrac and Florian Sempey will also lend their voices for this anniversary concert.

The 16th of March, at 8 p.m., the concert will be filmed from La Philharmonie de Paris, and broadcast in live on France Musique and Arte Concert.
