Pick Up



Pick Up

In a smaller form of the big band "Diagonal", that Jean-Christophe Cholet has been leading since 1999, this is a very new programme matching all sorts of audiences. Pick Up gathers a work of writing that Cholet has been working on for about 10 years around European Folk Musics  (1997 Suite Alpestre, 2000 English Sounds & Irish Suite, 2003 Slavonic Tone and 2006 French Touch). This interactive concert is original in making the audience and the band play together. Just like a juke-box, according to the audience request, the band will play a version of a famous song or a theme coming from universal folk music. Variations, arrangements, different modes of playing will present the piece in a style never heard before. All musicians have been chosen among the most famous French solists.
