Check out the most trendy concerts

Daniel Harding in front of the Philarmonie of Paris

The two hottest cultural trends of the moment? Going off with your buddies to a cool festival this Summer and checking out the Philharmonie de Paris program for the new season!

Explanation. Hot in the tracks of the hipster phenomenon, 2.0 classic music is more trendy than ever. To wit: instagramers, sexy bearded hunks and Parisiennes in the know are going wild around a concert with the Orchestra of Paris at the new Philharmonie!

And it’s a fact that this ultra futuristic building, thought out by Jean Nouvel himself, features incredible acoustics and an amazing stage that would certainly have bluffed David Bowie, Michael Jackson or Prince.

And to top it off: a furiously cool and trendy program led by conductor Daniel Harding, who is to classic what Benjamin Millepied is to ballet. A sound whiz, handsome, young, super talented and who everyone is talking about from Tokyo to Berlin...

Cherry on the piano: attend the Orchestre de Paris spectacle with its 119 outstanding musicians is an absolutely incredible experience that music lovers around the world dream of…

Phew: now is the time to book your seats for the upcoming season that has just opened before being SOLD OUT. A must !

We like: very good seats starting at 10€. Who said concerts were expensive?

Dates to book absolutely:

  • Faust, the highly awaited concert of the new season
  • Symphony N°10 by Gustav !
  • George Benjamin is creating the event with his new work inspired by Garcia Lorca with counter-tenor Bejun Mehta and Daniel Harding. A co-production with Orchestre de Paris and Festival d’Automne à Paris » not to be missed.
