A “test” concert in the Tony-Garnier hall

Thierry Téodori, former director of Halle Tony-Garnier, had already mentioned the possibility of a test concert in the Lyon concert hall in June 2021. That Friday morning, the cultural assistant confirmed the city’s willingness to conduct this test. Nathalie Perrin-Gilbert speaks of an audience of 3,000 to 4,000. The idea was to test volunteer participants before and a week after the meeting.
