    Vino Voce Festival

    To know more about
         The VINO VOCE festival returns to Saint-Emilion for its 9th edition on 6, 7 and 8 September 2024!        The Vino Voce festival was created in 2014 by Nadine Vasseur, a voice professional, host and producer of a magazine on France Culture. It is chaired by Patrick Junet, winegrower in Saint-Émilion.  Its vocation is to discover "the voice in all its forms".     The festival offers : - Concerts of vocal music in a wide range of genres (opera, world music, song, jazz, baroque, etc.) - Theatre performances - Meetings with voice professionals (film dubbers, impersonators, lawyers, phoniatric doctors, etc.) - A master class in opera singing  - Workshops for the public      These various activities take place in the most beautiful heritage sites of Saint-Emilion The title of the festival, Vino Voce, is a tribute to the wine-growing area of Saint-Emilion and its architectural heritage, which provides an exceptional setting for the voice. This meeting between wine and voice is also meaningful because there is more than one link between them. Indeed, wine and voice are both synonymous with exchange and conviviality. They are also both carriers of emotion and sensuality.   While you wait for the 2024 programme, book your place on Thursday 20 June for the concert in the church of Saint-Martin de Montagne!

This talented musician, saxophonist by training, now bass player in the band Die Cabine, decided to improvise a first evening in 2015. The following year, an association was formed, supported by friends who officially launched the Club Ephémère adventure. Popular, free and well thought through As the name suggests, the idea is to organise four or five evenings during the summer.  At the beginning, the artists solicited by the small team were a little reluctant to come to Saint-Émilion. Marc Lassègues' network and the reputation of the evenings encouraged groups to apply. "The intimacy of the event appeals to them enormously. From now on, the selection is made by audition. The Club éphémère seems rather open and is betting on the future.     Aftermovie Le Grand Soir in 2018       Aftermovie Le Grand Soir in 2019
