Our activities- Two annual events :
Solo or ensemble lute concerts concurrent with the fall meeting of the Board (October/November) ; Journées du Luth in Paris (late March or April) : concerts, conference or slideshow, instrument exhibition. These events provide an opportunity for lutenists to get together, for young artists to perform, and for spectators to discover an instrument, a repertoire that is very much alive, as well as a friendly atmosphere.
- Our association also publishes “Le joueur de luth”, its electronic newsletter, three times a year, in the fall, winter, and spring/summer, with news, in-depth articles, special features, photos, iconography, and a musical supplement.- Musical editions :
