ECOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL COMMITMENT
Ever since its creation by Julien Chauvin, one of the founding values of Le Quatuor Cambini-Paris has been commitment.
A multiple commitment, in the service of a collective musical project built up with respect, responsible on a human level, and which today also aims to be environmental and social.
The health and economic crisis that we are currently traversing forces us to rethink our models, habits and practices, in order to continue and develop our musical activities on more sustainable foundations.
It is not our intention to abandon international concerts, but to reduce their ecological impact by making each trip more energy-efficient, for example, by prolonging our stay beyond the concert.
To mark this desire for change, Julien Chauvin was one of the first signatories of the platform ‘For an ecological and social world’, and Le Quatuor Cambini-Paris has implemented more ecological measures for all its concerts and tours.
