Dynamic and eclectic, the Hélios Orchestra has been a leader since its creation in 2014.

Its artistic director, Paul Savalle, promotes the professional integration of young musicians through orchestral practice. Thus, young graduates mingle with orchestral musicians, conductors and experienced soloists in optimal working conditions.

From baroque to contemporary music, the programs are varied, the repertoire is both symphonic and choral, the orchestra is associated with departmental and regional choirs.

Thanks to the collaboration with different conductors, the musicians approach a very rich repertoire by widening their range of interpretation. They all come from the great French conservatories, some of them belonging to a national orchestra.

From the string quartet to the symphony orchestra, through the brass ensemble, the orchestra always widens its audience by modulating its composition. The "strings" formation performs in the most prestigious churches in Paris, allowing the public to discover a very rich architectural heritage.

Its variable-geometry formation allows the Hélios orchestra to approach a very wide repertoire with passionate curiosity.
