Here, at last, are the dates for the next summer teaching residency, hosted by Lionel Suarez!
This year, from July 31 to August 3, we'll be heading for the sublime Monts d'Aubrac and the village of Saint Hippolyte, where we'll be staying in a place entirely dedicated to teaching: the Résidence Haut 2 Gammes.
Fully equipped classrooms, recording studio, performance hall, accommodation and catering, all in one place.
All you have to do is work!
Accordionist, composer, jazzman, arranger, director, producer, artistic director... It's hard to list everything he's ever done and sum up a career path that's as singular as it is abundant. From Claude Nougaro to Richard Bona, from Jean Rochefort to the Orchestre National de Jazz, via Michel Vuillermoz, André Minvielle, Didier Lockwood, Sylvain Luc, Charles Aznavour, Véronique Sanson, Renaud, Pierre Perret, Clotilde Courau, Art Mengo, Yaël Naim and so many others, we grasp the eclecticism and versatility of this subtle colorist who was able to give the accordion orchestral flavors we'd never imagined.
