Singing to break free from isolation
Les concerts de poche
The project submitted to the Foundation is called “Chanter pour rompre l’isolement” (“Singing to break free from isolation”). It addresses adults and young people with major social, economic and/or family difficulties. These individuals are involved in a unifying music project. The project will be rolled out through ten initiatives in France in 2016.
Each one, designed with local partners, includes a series of music workshops followed by a concert by major musicians in which the participants play the “first part”. Involving 30 to 50 participants, the long-term initiative lasts from three to six months, and sometimes longer. The participants come together at weekly workshops on music creation and choral singing. Their creations are set to music to become songs. The participants attend the warm and informal concerts, often their first experience as a spectating public, free of charge. The social, cultural and generational intermingling continues after the concert. The organisation is benefiting from the donation of a vehicle for its travelling activities.
