Orchestra – Jazz schools
François Raulin Piano and composition
In the field of amateur music, the collective of musicians La Forge presents the Micromégas orchestra-school. Formed in 1997 by François Raulin, it carries out near professional level work at all steps of the creative process, strongly linking education, repertoire creation, improvisational work, and performance in various settings and public spaces (such as festivals, cultural seasons, concert venues, and artist gatherings). With more than 20 years of experience, Micromégas goes well beyond its objectives, both in terms of the orchestra’s level of skill and the dozens of original pieces that have been added to the repertoire, specially composed for the ensemble, with playful, inventive and colourful touches of jazz.
