Drawing on the experience gained during their time at the Festival, the HSBC Laureates of the Académie du Festival d'Aix are performing recitals and concerts throughout the year in France and abroad. See the mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre, HSBC Laureate 2016, on 23 April in Nantes.

As part of the Festival Les Art'Scènes, Lea Desandre and Thomas Dunford play the programme From Venice to Paris at the Graslin theatre in Nantes (Angers Nantes Opéra) on 23 April this year. The mezzo-soprano will be accompanied by Thomas Dunford on the theorbo, a large lute used in baroque music. Together, they perform several centuries of French songs, from the Baroque age to the Belle Époque, with French dances and melodies by Lambert, Charpentier, Le Camus, Marais, d’Ambruys, de Visée. 

This summer at the Festival d'Aix, the duo will propose another romantic wander full of contrasts and emotions in the courtyard of the Hotel Maynier d’Oppède.

When I started singing, there were stages of my career I dreamt of. To be HSBC Laureate is a plus!
