Strange events happened on 20 October in Lyon’s Auditorium. Swan feathers fell like thick flakes of snow on the stage when Lyon’s National Orchestra (ONL), conducted by Helene Bouchez, was playing Tchaikovski’s Swan Lake Ballet.
Music detective Harmonie Aventure was called to investigate the mysterious events in order to put an end to this puzzling situation.
Fortunately, the Auditorium’s keeper who knows everything about the place and its history will help Harmonie Aventure to turn back the clock.
Conductor Hélène Bouchez Will Help Solve Lyon’s Auditorium’s Strange Mysteries
No doubt, some part of this mystery will be solved during the next concert for the young on 5 December, 3.00 p.m. The children will be impressed by the brilliant French conductor Hélène Bouchez who has already worked as a guest conductor of orchestras around the world and has worked with leading music directors such as Pierre Boulez, Leonard Slatkin, Kurt Masur, Marin Alsop and Rafaël Frübeck de Burgos. In the United States, Hélène Bouchez recently conducted the National Symphony Orchestra (Washington) in the National Conducting Institute program held by Leonard Slatkin.
All the children over 6 will be able to attend a series of lights and sounds concerts to discover symphonic orchestra and instruments from 5 December 2012 to 4 May 2013.
