Chevalier de Saint Georges of Guadeloupe: Recital and Lecture


Joseph Bologne (1745-1799), better known as Chevalier de Saint-Georges, is a historical figure of Guadeloupean descent who was a virtuoso violinist, conductor, and composer. He is known to have influenced composers Haydn and Mozart. He was also the colonel of the famous "Légion Saint-Georges," the first all black military regiment in Europe where he fought for equality in the face of France’s Slavery Trade laws. 2019 marks the 220th Anniversary of his death.

Musicians from the Festival International de Musique Saint-Georges, will present a US preview concert and lecture of the music of Saint-Georges under the direction of Marlon Daniel, the festival’s Artistic Director and Music Director and Conductor of Ensemble du Monde.

This program is sponsored by  Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board
