La Schola Cantorum dans la vie symphonique à Nantes de 1913 à 1947

Abstract : From 1913 to 1947, since the first choirs performance to the death of her founder, Marguerite Le Meignen, Nantes Schola Cantorum experienced an uninterrupted activity, despite two world wars and a disturbed political context. The group is born in Nantes, a flourishing town before WWI where musical life is greatly diversified, despite the predominance of lyric theater. Thanks to Marguerite Le Meignen, a very strong personality, a concert company comes. With a great sense of organization, knowing how to communicate with brio, she suggests various programs both winter and summer. The link with Paris Schola Cantorum founded by Vincent d’Indy, assured with conviction at the creation of Nantes Schola, soon vanished very quickly. Marguerite Le Meignen’s hegemonic place, dominating Nantes musical life during thirty-four years, prevented plurality, evenif she ends up competing with other symphonic bands, particulary the famoust « Association des Concerts Symphoniques du Conservatoire de Nantes » who prefigures the actuel « Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire ».
