Ensemble Ganymed is an adaptable musical group that was founded in 1998. Composed of professional singers, instrumentalists, and an actress, our group offers a variety of musical configurations to suit any occasion. We specialise in chamber music for voice and instruments, and our concerts are based on poetic themes that range from solo recitals with voice and piano or harp, to four-part a cappella pieces or chamber music arrangements for voice and instruments. Our repertoire spans a wide historical period, ranging from the Baroque era to the present day. This allows us to showcase a diverse selection of musical works, including lieder, melodies, vocal groups, and opera arias. At Ganymed Ensemble, we are passionate about literature and exploring new forms of performance. This has led us to collaborate with actors, including Agathe Delhommeau, at the occasion of aconcert with readings that explored the correspondences between Robert and Clara Schumann. We have also collaborated with an astronomy association for a concert entitled La lune (The moon). This event combined music and astronomy to create a truly unforgettable experience for our audience.

We are dedicated to interpreting both well-known and lesser-known works of chamber music, as well as creating our own original pieces. In fact, we have collaborated with composer Daniel Humbert to produce some unique works that are based on the poems of local writers from the Senlis region.
These works include Guitares (Guitars), which is an extract from the cycle Accords Perdus (Lost chords), and is set to the poems of Pierre Smée. It was performed on March 11, 2017, and features soprano, flute, and piano. We have also performed Retouches (alterations), which was set to the poems of Daniel Boulangers and featured soprano, baritone, horn, and harp. This piece was performed on June 25, 2011.
In addition, we performed A corps communs (by shared bodies) on June 2, 2011, at the Royal Abbey of Moncel. This piece was based on the poem of René Quinon and was written for four-part harmony and piano. It was commissioned by the festival Les voix du Moncel (Voices of Moncel).

We are committed to bringing the rich cultural heritage of our region (La Picardie, now Haut-de-France) to life through our music. We perform in a variety of settings, ranging from small churches and concert halls to gardens, libraries, and museums. We are always on the lookout for unique and unusual performance spaces that allow us to create a truly immersive experience for our audience. This has led us to perform in some truly remarkable locations, such as the cellar of an abbey, a rustic barn, a former sugar refinery, and even the Arenas of Senlis.
