Mobilisation on 20 March: Spring is inexorable

Since March the 4th, artists and technicians have been occupying numerous cultural buildings throughout France, demanding that they be reopened and campaigning for jobs and protection for the professionals.
Les Percussions de Strasbourg joins this process and resolutely supports these demands.
We invite you to join us on Saturday, March the 20th at 11am on the Place d’Austerlitz in Strasbourg for a day of mobilisation.

Cancellation / postponement of our concerts :

Due to the health situation, we are once again forced to cancel the concerts scheduled for March and April. Our concerts of Persephassa (I.Xenakis) and Kore (C.E. Cella) at the Maerzmusik Festival Berlin are replaced by an online collaborative performance called Timepiece. Furthermore, Thierry de Mey’s Timelessness tour planned in the south of France in April is obviously cancelled. We are working on postponing it to later dates

Our education projects

Nevertheless, rehearsals and school activities continue. Our Percustra workshops in the schools of the Hautepierre district (Ecole Jacqueline, Ecole Brigitte, Colège Erasme, Collège Truffaut) as well as the Demos project are still going strong!
