conference before the concerts

History of music in the Basilica
June 1st – 7pm – High choir of the Basilica

Since the Middle Ages and until today, music is present in the Basilica. Musicologist and journalist Laure Dautriche looks back on the great moments that have marked this history.

Laure Dautriche is a musicologist and journalist at Europe 1 since 2009, in charge of subjects concerning heritage, history, science and the environment. She has a degree in musicology and modern literature and is also a violinist. She is the author of Ces musiciens qui ont fait l’Histoire (Musicians who made history), in which she tells how great musicians have maintained relationships of admiration, seduction or opposition with the powerful.

Free on reservation. Information from the ticket office 01 48 13 06 07.
