BEFORE THE FESTIVAL


APARTMENT CONCERTS

The “apartment concerts” of the Festival Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo come to your street!
For the purchase of a minimum of 10 concert seats, at “group” rate, the Festival offers to organize a concert at your home!
We invite the artists… you invite your friends and relatives! N.B.: limited offer!
We will check out your apartment to ensure it is suitable for a concert and give you any necessary advice.


THE MUSICAL CARAVAN

Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo is collaborating with numerous towns and villages to organize decentralized concerts, during the period leading up to the Festival.
The “musical caravan” gives Côte d’Azur residents the chance to discover the world of Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo, in an intimate and convivial context.
Audience members at these concerts will benefit from a special offer on events in the Festival’s 2020 season.

A SOUND JOURNEY AT THE MAMAC, NICE

Lars Fredrikson is a “sound sculptor”, whose works have to be both heard and felt. In the context of a major retrospective, to be held at the Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain, Nice, from November 16, 2019, to March 22, 2020, in association with the Nouveau Musée National, Monaco, which will publish a book on the exhibition, the Festival invites you to a triple event: a conference about the artist’s work, a unique and surprising sound journey within the exhibition, and “listening rooms” – as a world premiere. At the end of some concerts, you will be able to listen to recordings of pieces by the artist, from the collection of the Centre Pompidou, Paris.

FRIDAY MARCH 6 – 7pm
RENDEZVOUS “Sound-vision-space. Discover the work of Lars Fredrikson”, with Marc Bembekoff, Director of La Galerie Contemporary art center of Noisy-le-Sec, followed by a SOUND JOURNEY through the exhibition.

> free entry, by reservation. Tel. +377 97 98 32 90
