Jean-Pierre Thomin has received Bro Gozh Price 2016 in the name of Kanomp Breizh, during the 35th Breizh a Gan.
The price has been given to him by Lena Louarn, second-president of Regional Council of Brittany, for Kanomp Breizh, in the name of the breton singing choirs.
This price underlined the importance of the work achieved by the choirs during the course of the last century in favour of our national anthem Bro Gozh Ma Zadou.
On this occasion, it has been recalled how much this song, shared by Bretons with the Welsh, the Cornish and the Khasi people, is a song of unity of all those who feel breton by the blood, the heart or the circumstances. And it is a song of omening to the world as well.
Kanomp Breizh is very proud to share the price with all its members !
A new book for december : Yvonne Breilly-Le Calvez's life
Yvonne Breilly-Le Calvez : Brittany, poetry and choirs
This little book recounts the amazing life of a great woman in choral singing world : Yvonne Breilly-Le Calvez. Throughout the pages, the authors, coordinated by Yvon Trinquet, unwind the thread of Dirinon's young girl's life (29), who always kept in mind the breton hymns sing in her parrish. We follow the life of the schoolteacher, the one of the choir conductor, and we discover her world of creation, with an imagination fed by breton poetry.
Bilingual book : breton / french. Translated by Jean-Pierre Thomin
