Created five years ago, the festival "Dans les jardins de William Christie" is filled with poetry, promoting closer links between arts. The garden of William Christie becomes the gorgeous forum to bring together music, theater and literature. The festival is centered on the musical ensemble "Les Arts Florissants", dedicated to baroque music. The major feature of the festival lies in the principle of the musical wanderings : the audience moves from one place of the garden to another, from one concert to another. William Christie, the director of the ensemble is Franco-American, and looks for, every year, eight students of the prestigious Juilliard School that would greatly fit for the festival. A significant contribution that proves that the Festival is thirst for young talents. Thus, the eight students selected join the ensemble, and this collaboration gives without a doubt energy to the Festival.
