UPDATE 2022 Festival and COVID-19

Chers Amis, Artistes et Soutiens,

Merci pour votre appui indéfectible et votre parrainage continu pour le Festival International de Musique Saint-Georges. Compte-tenu de la situation sanitaire au regard du COVID-19 et des enjeux que cela induit, rien ne nous assure de pouvoir organiser le festival en avril 2022 comme initialement prévu, en toute sécurité. Un festival comme le nôtre, qui rassemble des artistes du monde entier du plus haut niveau, nécessite des mois, voire des années, de planification, de collecte de fonds et d’ajustements logistiques. Du fait des contraintes actuelles, nous ne pensons pas pouvoir offrir le niveau de qualité auquel nous plaçons ce festival, désormais mondialement référencé et nous ne pensons pas non plus pouvoir garantir à tous nos artistes internationaux un niveau de sécurité optimal. Nous ne pouvons pas non plus prendre le moindre risque vis à vis de nos soutiens et du public guadeloupéen.

Des pistes sont actuellement explorées dans la perspective d’un festival passionnant qui aurait lieu plus tard en 2022 voire en 2023. Nous vous invitons à rester en veille sur notre site Web pour suivre les mises à jour. Merci de votre soutien continu au Festival International de Musique Saint-Georges.

Nous vous souhaitons tout le meilleur.
Musicalement

Marlon Daniel

Dear Friends, Artists and Supporters,

Thank you for your overwhelming support and continued patronage of the Festival International de Musique Saint-Georges. With the continued presence of COVID-19, we feel that we cannot safely hold a festival in April 2022 as originally planned. Festivals like ours, where we bring artists of the highest caliber from all around the world, require months if not years of planning, fundraising and logistical arrangements. With current restrictions, we do not feel that we can deliver the quality of festival that we have become world-renowned for and still support the safety of all our artists, supporters and the general Guadeloupe public.

Plans are currently underway for an exciting festival either later in 2022 or 2023. Please stay tuned to our website for updates. Thank you for your continued support of the Festival International de Musique Saint-Georges.

Wishing you all the very best.

Marlon Daniel
Artistic/Musical Director

The Festival International de Musique Saint-Georges is a tribute to Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799), a great historical figure born in Guadeloupe. He was Europe's greatest fencer and an exceptional military leader at the time of the French Revolution, but his true love was music. In 18th century France, he was recognized as a virtuoso violinist, conductor and composer. His operas, concertos, quartets, symphonies and sinfonia concertantes influenced the great composers of his day, including Franz Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His life inspired iconic authors such as Alexandre Dumas. One of the most prestigious music festivals in the Caribbean, the Saint-Georges International Music Festival stands out as a unique emblem for diversity in the classical music world.
