The instrumental band Elegia
The instrumental band Elegia was created in 2006 under the leadership of Sophie Rabouint (piano), Erwan Le Ru (oboe) and Jérôme Percher (horn) who wanted to contribute to the recognition f their musical school of Beaufort-en-Anjou.

Their objectives are as follow; honour a musical repertory often unknown, and make the best use of the complicity between musical interpreters.

The new arrival of Corinne Merrer-Gasselin (flûte) enabled this quarto to keep on expanding their repertory. This often meant that some liberties had to be taken and changes made in order to ensure that the public could discover some works too often overlooked.

In the hope that you will enjoy their good nature and their musical choices, Elegia is happy to invite to share a convivial moment.
