This year, for the first time, you'll be able to not only enjoy one weekend of EEEMERGING+ artists... But three of them!

The Ambronay Festival has always been more than just a celebration of early music; and the year 2023 marked a significant milestone for that: as the Cultural Center celebrated 20 years of artistic innovation and commitment.


But do you know how this EEEMERGING+ adventure all started?

In 1993, Ambronay laid the foundation for the first Baroque Academy, a pioneering initiative that later earned recognition as an ambassador for the European Union. Over time, this project evolved into the EEEMERGING program, a testament to Ambronay’s unwavering dedication to nurturing young musical ensembles.

Three decades later, we celebrated the 2023 Early Music Festival ‘Générations Ambronay’.


This edition’s goal was to cherish and celebrate the generations of musicians who have graced Ambronay’s stages. 


Throughout the four weeks of festivities, Ambronay was be a meeting ground for artists of different generations:



It brought together participants and directors of former Academies, including Patricia Petibon, Stéphanie D’Oustrac, Héloïse and Ophélie Gaillard, Vincent Dumestre, Leonardo García Alarcón, William Christie, Paul Agnew, and Ophélie Gaillard.


And it also featured our EEEMERGING+ ensembles!

We were excited for Cantoría, ApotropaïK, The WIG Society, The Ministers of Pastime, Cohaere Ensemble, La Camerata Chromatica, PRISMA, and La Palatine to show what the young generation can bring to early music.
