Mécénat Musical Société Générale, patron of Equilibrium

For more than 30 years, the long-standing dedication and commitment of Mécénat Musical Société Générale has made it a top patron of classical music in France.

Its commitment to young musicians has been reflected in partnerships since 1988 with the two most prestigious schools of classical music education in the country: the National Conservatories of Music of Paris and Lyon. The association provides assistance to their students’ personal projects: purchase of instruments, touring abroad, participation in contests, etc. To support the growth of the most promising instrumentalists, Mécénat Musical Société Générale has also committed itself to creating a collection of ancient and contemporary instruments.

Since 2017, the association has supported la Maîtrise Populaire of Opéra-Comique, which trains young singers aged from eight to twenty-three years old. Working in one of the oldest concert houses in France, this troupe is trained in singing, stamina, rehearsal, staging and even stage fright.

Equilibrium (EQ) takes over with these initiatives as the young graduate faces the important choices ahead. Supported by Mécénat Musical Société Générale, EQ is more than ever an embodiment of the Group’s signature: “The Future is You.”
