The ACCR welcomes its new General Delegate on 22 March 2022
Odile Pradem-Faure succeeds Isabelle Battioni, who has taken on the directorship of the Ambronay Abbey CCR.
Among her achievements as General Director of the Abbaye aux Dames CCR, Odile Pradem-Faure worked on the implementation of the Cité Musicale and on the development of its educational mission, combining training, cultural awareness and outreach.
The search for new ways to discover both the site and music, in order to attract a wider audience, led to the emergence of the sensory experience ‘Musicaventure’. The Festival de Saintes, a well-known feature of the classical music landscape, celebrated its 50th anniversary in July 2021.
With her 29 years of experience at the Abbaye aux Dames, Odile Pradem-Faure is well acquainted with the network of CCRs and the local reality of its members.
Working at the heart of the ACCR, her mission will be to manage the network in France and internationally, in particular strengthening its European dimension.
