Sunday 04 December

On Sunday 04 December, the Breizh A Gan itself will take place, a large concert of Breton choral singing, in the cathedral of Saint-Pol-de-Léon.

Programming

1st part of the concert :

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Breizh A Gan, Kanomp Breizh wanted as many of its member choirs as possible to take part in the first part of the concert. This is why the choirs have grouped together by region in order to present a common programme exclusively for the public!

2nd part of the concert :
Mouezh Paotred Breizh

This choir, seven times champion of Brittany, is the reigning champion. Recognised everywhere it performs for the quality of its interpretations, Mouezh Paotred Breizh was founded on the model of the Welsh choirs to take part in the World Choir gathering in Atlanta in 1993. Since then it has never deviated from its high standards and gives numerous concerts each year in Brittany, France and abroad.

The Brittany Choral Ensemble

The Choral Ensemble is made up of around one hundred singers from sixteen choirs that are members of Kanomp Breizh. They come from all over Brittany, from Ploudalmézeau to Nantes. These choral singing enthusiasts are directed by an experienced conductor who is just as passionate about bringing Breton choral singing to life: Jean-Marie Airault. They are accompanied on stage by an instrumental ensemble.

Practical information :
  • Address : Cathedral – 29250 Saint-Pol-de-Léon
  • Schedule : 2.30 pm : Door opening – 3. pm : Beginning of the concert
Online bookings :

Concert tickets can also be purchased at the Saint-Pol-de-Léon tourist office.
