Bike tour 2021


After the launch of its first bike tour in Normandy in August 2020, Correspondances get back on their bikes between 17 and 25 September 2021! With a new team and a new programme, the eleven musicians will travel throughout Normandy on 300 km between La Bec-Hellouin and Balleroy. Detailed information on the dedicated concert page.

This year, we are supported by the DRAC Normandie, the théâtre de Caen, the ADTLB, the ALiS, the Intercom de Bernay, and the Fondation Michelin.




Itinerant music within Norman heritage sites

Back to the 17th century, music nurtures the court’s daily life, especially itinerant music before the construction of Versailles. The musicians would then adapt to an unpredictable headcount, sometimes very unusual playing conditions, rudimentary instruments, all the hazards linked to the movings, in order to keep on giving rhythm to the life of a community, whatever happens.

Built in less than three months to respond in a flexible way to the obligations of the health crisis and to come as closely as possible to the rural territories, the bike tour of the ensemble Correspondances becomes an annual event to discover the most beautiful heritage sites of Normandy. On the programme : presentation of the baroque instruments, musical processions, concerts and bike rides with the public have put music and conviviality back to the priorities.

Cultural feast for young and old alike

Each step of this tour has allowed to open a window on a territory, its heritage, and the preferred music of Correspondances, with a particular attention brought to the younger people !

Stud farm, rural manor, abbeys, churches : six private and public heritage sites, particularly atypical, have welcomed these festive events, creating unexpected links with the music offered by the ensemble Correspondances.
