Unique in its kind, the Chantier des Francos is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. This veritable nursery of musical talent, of which the Cosy Hotels is a partner, offers an all-round educational programme to budding young musicians and singers. Throughout the year, the Chantier supports, oversees and helps with the development of emerging talent… talent that can be seen on stage in La Rochelle during concerts organised at the end of the students’ residency.
Located a short distance from the Cosy Hotels, this former shipyard, converted into a venue, regularly welcomes promising talent from the world of music who come to perfect their skills by working with an educational team composed of artists, singing teachers, directors, technical engineers and experienced stylists. As instigators of this project twenty years ago, the Francofolies has made a priority of supporting and guiding future artists. This year, 15 performers, either solo artists or groups, will have the opportunity to participate in this amazing experience at the Chantier des Francos venue. At the end of their ‘study’ period, they traditionally put on a live performance in front of an audience who are invited to participate in this real ‘live show’.
