- Polyfollia, the festival
Polyfollia is a non-profit organization, which aims to promote choral music at its best through two events:
The Polyfollia project arose from an observation: choral art is too often little-known and goes unappreciated by the world's music promoters of the world as well as by the general public, both in France and abroad.
Choral singing is the victim of its old-fashioned image as opposed to its living reality - 40 million people in the world sing in a choir and polyphonic vocal music is one of the most bubbling and creative of the performing arts. It comprises a wide range of styles and formats: early or contemporary music, classical or jazz, pop, rock, traditional or folk. It is the voice for all the cultures, providing exciting opportunities to meet, exchange and share.
In addition, the very nature of choral art – mutual listening, working collectively – makes it the perfect vehicle for educational and/or social projects enabling the integration of people in difficulty and the handing down of traditions and knowledge in the inspiring context of an artistic and collaborative creation.
Polyfollia aims to:
- present to the public the best of the international choral art
- facilitate the meeting of the best vocal ensembles with the international professionals from the field of broadcasting and musical entertainment.
- offer the amateur singers the opportunity to meet the invited ensembles and to develop their technique and repertoire as a result of the experience.
