The Mâcon Symphonies association was created on December 9, 1993. Its aim is to promote young musical talent and support the lyrical and symphonic repertoire. To this end, it organizes a number of events in the city of Mâcon: concerts throughout the year, a festival dedicated to the vocal arts and the Mâcon International Opera and French Song Competition.
Valuing all forms of vocal art, the festival is a rich and unifying event where professional and amateur artists meet.
The program features professional singers and ensembles in fascinating concerts, and dedicates a special moment to amateur practices during the Polyphonies d’automne, with local choirs.
