Piano du Lac, concerts on the water at Ventenac in Minervois (11)

The Piano du Lac company is moving to Ventenac-en-Mirnevois (Aude) for two evenings of floating concerts on the canal du Midi, on September 2 and 3, for the benefit of the replanting project.

On September 2 and 3, the calm waters of the Canal du Midi will host the concert “Two Solar Systems”, performed by two musicians and a singer from the Piano du Lac company.


  • Thursday September 2, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Friday September 3, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.

This event is organized by the Nouvelles Racines association, which works for the replanting of the Canal du Midi and in partnership with Voies navigables de France and the City of Ventenac-en-Minervois.

Show “Two solar systems”: song music on the water.

From lake to lake, from pond to river, from port to shore, let yourself be enchanted by this unexpected poetic spectacle. The image may seem surreal but the boat of the PianO du Lac, a half-tail, is indeed floating ..!

A singer and a salt worker, musician and picker of fleur de sel, nature and music are intertwined in the life of Delphine Coutant. It was therefore quite natural that she joined the adventure of the company “Le pianO du lac” in 2015, floating pianos in the same spirit with more than two hundred and fifty concerts in the waters of France and Spain.

For this new floating show, Delphine surrounds herself with trombonist Jenny Violleau and cellist Daniel Trutet. Coming from popular song but studying for four years writing and orchestration at the Conservatory of Nantes in order to expand her range of composer, Delphine Coutant signs here unusual compositions at the crossroads of popular and scholarly music, nourished by poetry of nature and accompanied by it. A new creation where “under the pullovers grow camellias, two solar systems come together”.
