Guest Presentation | Dr. Marina Chiche: Nadia Boulanger and Longy

Tuesday • March 29, 2022   |   12:00 pm 1:00 pm


Join us for a presentation by Dr. Marina Chiche on Nadia Boulanger and her connection to Longy.

Nadia Boulanger taught at Longy from 1938-1945, offering advanced courses in composition, harmony, and counterpoint, as well as lectures on Beethoven’s string quartets and Bach’s cantatas. While Nadia Boulanger may seem more traditional to our modern perceptions, she was a pioneer and innovator in her own time. Involved in early versions of the work Longy continues today, Boulanger aimed to invent new ways for musicians to embark on their educational journey. During this event, Dr. Chiche will explore Boulanger’s deep and lasting connection to Longy and our educational pursuits.

Born in Marseille, Dr. Marina Chiche is a French violinist who regularly performs worldwide. She was Head of Strings at Trossingen University of Music from 2013-2018. Dr. Chiche has recently published a book, Musiciennes de Légende, on exceptional women in music, which is available now.

While this event is open to the public, you must pre-register in order to gain access in person. Registering for the performance is an important step to ensure the ability of contact tracing. No walk-ups will be allowed at Longy for performances.
