orchestrator of the grand procession
Le Lann features widely in the Festival programme, for it is he who
brings together all the participants, and notably the dancing and singing
events. Throughout the week he directs numerous workshops, but he is
best known as the orchestrator and leader of the grand procession in
traditional costume. Raymond is a very busy man. But he doesn’t let
it show. He is a model of patience.
Every day, he directs the children’s dance workshop, and throughout
the week he takes on the challenging job of teaching 15-20 dances to
a group of 150 adults and 80 children. He also organises the tavern
at the Bishop’s Palace and sings every day at Saint-Mathieu with Alan
this would be enough for most people, but these are in fact only
the extra-curricular activities in the life of a member of the
Festival Committee. His main job is to lay the groundwork for,
and then ensure the smooth execution of, the procession.
