Ensemble Sillages

Founded in 1992 by Philippe Arrii-Blachette, the Sillages ensemble is a group of musicians who express their performer's sensibility through composers of our time. Sillages and Le Quartz, the national theatre of Brest, have been associated since 1996, giving rise to numerous projects: premieres, dissemination of the contemporary repertoire, cultural and educational actions - a whole arsenal of proposals that Sillages is developing everywhere for instructing the public in the

music of our time.

Working with living composers is at the centre of the ensemble's artistic policy for an accurate interpretation of their musical thoughts and to also favour bringing them closer to the public through a living comprehension of their works. In addition to the contemporary repertoire, Sillages elaborates projects always with the aim of bringing the widest audience possible into contact with the new musical forms.
