Created in 2002 by Yannick Lemaire, its artistic director, Harmonia Sacra - Baroque music ensemble from Valenciennes - mainly explores the sacred repertoire of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The ensemble's size adapts to the works it covers as well as its atypical performing network (from a national scene to a particular house).
Each program aims to allow the singers and instrumentalists of the ensemble to share with the public unaccustomed to this repertoire the fruit of their artistic companionship and their demanding musical research.
This human and musical ambition gives meaning and cohesion to all the projects of the ensemble. Yannick Lemaire and Loris Barrucand share the musical direction of Harmonia Sacra since 2018.
