on the viola da gamba

After playing for a long time in ensemble and then solo, in early music repertoire, which he can still do, Roland Kern has given a new direction to his art. Since 2018, with the concept of in situ musical creations, Roland Kern has been able to develop and assert concerts that are completely singular and unique, as he proposes to take his audience on a journey through an encounter with the places that have inspired him, his viola da gamba and his art of creating and performing. In front of 300 people, or in an intimate setting ranging from the palliative care unit of a hospital to a mountain refuge or France’s most famous châteaux and writers’ homes, Roland Kern’s concerts will take you on a journey of discovery.

Concert in France

Roland Kern performs all over France and is also planning dates in Europe in the future. Whether you’re looking for free or paying concerts, for a young or adult audience, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for.
