The Bridge’s mission is to develop relationships and mutual knowledge between musicians and structures from both continents through the continuous support of Franco-American groups and the organization of tours/exploratory trips. One of the results of our activity since 2013 has been to encourage more and more initiatives in parallel with the four annual tours.
Some of these initiatives are listed here. They fall under the following scenarios:
- Helping (putting in contact, communication support, logistical support) ensembles that have already benefited from our system and completed a complete tour, but wish to continue their adventures elsewhere in France, Europe and/or North America, to set up new tours…
- Help musicians who are members of ensembles to plan the parallel activities of their choice, on the margins of tours. (see resources).
- Designing, during the tours, with our partners in concert halls and festivals, several concerts in co-presentation, associating formations co-directed by at least one other musician member of The Bridge, or close to the network. And by encouraging cross-over between groups during the evening (see resources)..
- Co-constructing Franco-American initiatives outside of the ensembles we produce and the tours we organize
For any information about The Bridge’s ensembles, and the possibility to invite them, please contact the team.
