The Partners of Impromptus 2021
The Maison Arc-en-Ciel and the Day Hospital of Marmande are our partners for the organization of the Impromptus Lyriques 2021.
The Maison Arc En Ciel is entirely managed by its users, helped by volunteers. It is a place of activity that is also a place of exchange and refuge. Most of the users come from Psychological Medical Centers, but there are also workers from Centers for Help through Work, disabled people who are not known to the psychiatric sector.
High school students are not forgotten by the Brigades Lyriques Itinérantes, who go to meet classes.
Students from Labrunie elementary school in Marmande, Sainte Bazeille and Fourques met with Anne-Sophie Vincent, Mezzo, and Stéphane Trébuchet, pianist, during a privileged moment of sharing during which they were able to discover the profession of lyric singer and ask all their questions. They then attended the free recital “Voyage en Terres Hispaniques”.
