Enhance your musical knowledge for free


The new generation of students doesn’t often get the chance to go see classical music concerts and therefore aren’t exposed to as much of this genre as they would sometimes like. The Auditorium de Lyon is changing that with a free Concert Étudiants on November 29th 2018.



In an effort to make concerts more accessible for students, the Auditorium is organizing a Concert Étudiants. For this year’s event, Lyon’s National Orchestra will be focusing on Maurice Ravel, directed by Leonard Slatkin.

The program will include Ravel’s Alborada del Gracioso, Le Tombeau de Couperin, Tzigane and La Valse (poème chorégraphique), as well as Modest Moussorgski’s Tableaux d’une exposition (orchestrated by Ravel). The solo part in Tzigane will go to the Orchestra’s violin soloist, Jennifer Gilbert.

Concert Étudiants in the Auditorium de Lyon on November 29th

The Student Concert will be on November 29th at 8 PM, located in the Auditorium de Lyon. It is free and reserved for students of no particular age or school.

Tickets can be picked up on site, at Lyon Campus (25 rue Jaboulay) or certain schools (specified on the list online), as long as you present your student card. No tickets will be distributed the day of.

Free conferences and presentations revolving around Maurice Ravel will also be offered on October 19th, December 7th, January 25th and February 22nd. A 30-minute presentation of the concert’s pieces will take place in the Bas-Atrium, thanks to Sophie Miczka, one hour before the event.
