LAUNCH OF THE 14 NUMBER FROM BILLEBAUDE AT THE MUSÉE DE LA MUSIQUE

NIGHT OF ROSSIGNOL

Thursday 21 March 2019, from 19H30 to midnight

Facebook event

In popular traditions, the nightingale announces spring, but it is also, and above all, the poetic allegory of the origins of music. With his vigorous song, he embodies lyricism, amorous exaltation and the outpouring of nature. 

The nightingale also sings at night; soloist of the sleeping plains, he frees then, in the souls of men, the nocturnal reverie. For its first Night of the Nightingale, the Music Museum is experimenting within its collection a poetic journey punctuated by concerts, choreographies, unusual performances, sound installations and electronic creation around the imagination of birds. Along with this program (IN), the public is welcomed in the Musical Street by numerous animations (OFF) extending the experience.
