The "Musique sur mer" association offers, every first Thursday of the month, a concert of lyrical music at the Saint-Thomas church, where it will perform a few "concertinos".

Originally from the Normandy coast, Le Concertino, composed according to the concerts of 3 or 4 performers, makes every effort to imbue its audience with this lyrical, harmonious and refined atmosphere. Constantly seeking to perfect their vocal and stage techniques, and to develop their unique style, the members of the Concertino draw their inspiration from the operatic music scene and its dreams.

Thursday, June 2: Tribute to female composers
Forgotten in the history of music, women composers are nevertheless very present and their works owe nothing to those of their male counterparts. The Concertino will this evening be made up exclusively of women – sopranos, mezzo, pianist. Women who will perform works by women: Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, Pauline Viardot, Alma Mahler, Mel Bonis or Cécile Chaminade. Isabelle Timsit, Florence Devieilhe, Mamisoa Razanajatovo, Sandrine Rihet and Chantal Carteau

Thursday July 7: Italian music
Italy is the homeland of music, aren't all the words of music Italian: piano, allegro, concerto, adagio, a tempo, andante, ... And Italian composers have left a lasting mark on the history of music from Monteverdi to Rossini, from Vivaldi to Puccini, without forgetting Verdi. Tonight, Le Concertino takes us by gondola to this musica al cuore, baroque, romantic or Neapolitan that speaks so much to the heart.
Isabelle Timsit, Nathalie Inbona, Yves Capelle and Chantal Carteau

Thursday August 4: Tonight with Mozart
The divine Mozart left to posterity, despite his short existence, unforgettable masterpieces, both in the lyrical field and in religious or secular music, both in vocal music and in instrumental music. The Concertino offers arias (solos, duos, trios) from his most beautiful operas, Les Noces de Figaro, Cosi fan tutte, Don Juan, but also The Magic Flute or La Clémence de Titus.
Isabelle Timsit, Cécile Wuillème, Chantal Carteau and Yves Capelle

Thursday, September 1: Sacred Music
Throughout the ages, great composers have written music to pray to God and celebrate their faith. Music loaded with spirituality and beauty, sacred music takes very varied forms, masses, motets, stabat mater, ave maria, requiem. This evening Le Concertino offers works by Purcell, Handel, Bach and Mozart, Franck and Saint-Saëns, but also by Paolo Tosti and Leonard Cohen.
Isabelle Timsit, Mamisoa Razanajatovo, Yves Capelle and Gabrielle Valouvin

Thursday 6 October: The great arias of the opera
Well wedged in an orchestra chair, under the gold of the decorations and the red velvet of the hangings, we see the opera delivering its mysteries, the voices intertwining and the drama unfolding. The Concertino offers arias tonight, excerpts from the most famous and well-known operas in the repertoire: Carmen, Faust, Manon, The Barber of Seville, Otello, Anna Bolena, La Traviata and Simon Bocanegra.
Isabelle Timsit, Mamisoa Razanajatovo, Sandrine Rihet, Yves Capelle and Chantal Carteau
