PRO Profile - Cité de la Musique
A VENUE FOR ART AND LIFE, OPEN ON THE WORLD
Designed by architect Christian de Portzamparc, the Cité de la Musique is a venue for art and life surrounded by the greenery of the Parc de la Villette, in the heart of the French capital.
It is an international reference centre devoted to music, and hosts the world's most popular artists. In partnership with prestigious European concert halls, it encourages musical creation and the promotion of young European talents. The Cité also co-produces exhibitions with foreign museums and disseminates its expertise and know-how worldwide.
La Cité also welcomes the Ensemble Intercontemporain in residence, an ensemble devoted to 20th century music and the premiering of new works.
