The Musicatreize auditorium

Some unusual places trigger vocations – this auditorium is one of them. Located at the 53 Grignan street, in the courtyard of what once was the Hôtel de Paul, the Musicatreize auditorium still seems to be inspired by the pictorial art and artists who took part in its history since the 17th century. But within its walls, discourses and songs from not so long ago also resonate, since it became the Republican Circle hall at the beginning of the 20th century. It then hosted different events in which speakers and singers would follow each other. Amongst these latter, ‘voice’ singers still resisting the audio era, would come here to take singing classes, or present their show. Pre-war, Yves Montand himself did here his first vocal exercises before displaying his talent at the Alcazar. During the 60s, the hall became a dancing and on Sunday afternoons trendy amator dancers would gather here…

Rehearsal location of the Musicatreize ensemble for more than 10 years, in 2012 the auditorium is transformed and begins to host concerts. A place for those who want to promote today’s music liveliness, beyond trends and constraints. A charming and uncommon concert hall : a place where things get together, where up-to-date creations and masterpieces from the past sail along in a fun and simple way…

For 8 seasons, Roland Hayrabedian’s artistic programmes have pursued transmission purposes through the organisation of artistic residencies, masterclasses, as well as educational and inclusive actions benefitting a public as diverse as possible.

In 2017, the Musicatreize auditorium is labelled by the French Ministry of Culture as an ‘artistic factory workshop’.
