Direction Samuel Jean


With its two hundred years of existence, the Avignon Provence Regional Orchestra is a must-see cultural showcase for the city of Avignon, the Greater Avignon Agglomeration Community, the Vaucluse Department and the Region

Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. It assumes a triple mission:

– In the pit of the Opera of Avignon, he participates in all the lyrical seasons of the Opera-Theater of Grand Avignon.

– In Avignon and throughout the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, he realizes an ample activity of concerts for all the public, especially with the younger generations.

. Under the impulse of Philippe Grison, its General Manager, the Avignon Provence Regional Orchestra now radiates on its territory, in France and internationally: in 2010 in South Korea at the Daejeon International Orchestra Festival in 2013 in India .

Since January 2013, Samuel Jean is First Guest Chef of the Avignon-Provence Regional Orchestra. He recorded with this orchestra the world premiere Peter Pan by composer Olivier Penard, published in November 2012, and Doctor Miracle by Bizet in May 2013 (Choc Classica).
