Pratiques et Creations Musicales

The Knitting orchestra

Welcome to the multi-faceted orchestra of young players,  amateurs and those looking for inspiring musical encounters.

We are a Classical Big Band : we  play classical and jazz, with hints of funk, folk and world, with a shared sense of discovery.

Scores are adapted to all levels and (almost!) all instruments, to enable musicians of differing experience to play together, knitting seamlessly into a whole!
