About the Association of Friends

The Association of the Friends of Jean Langlais was created on 9th December, 2005 after the first Langlais Festival which took place in the summer of 2005. Its purpose is:

  • to organise cultural and musical events
  • to promote and perpetuate the memory and work of Jean Langlais
  • to develop musical culture, especially among the young

The Association organised a second, larger festival in 2006 and it has now become an annual event, uniting French and international singers and musicians.
