Societe Generale’s cultural sponsorship commitment dates back several decades.

Since 1987, Societe Generale has gradually established itself as a key advocate in the world of music, offering support to hundreds of young musicians, orchestras and ensembles, and contributing to the expanding reach of classical music beyond its traditional audience. 

Since 1995, the Bank has been supporting international artists and its diversified contemporary art collection in the La Defense head office in France – with photography, paintings and sculptures from both well-known and emerging talents – materialising the Group's goal to forge closer links between the arts and business worlds.

In recent years, Societe Generale was involved in a series of concerts across the region: these included world-renowned cellist  Gautier Capuçon in Singapore and South Korea, Transcendent Ensemble for the Croisements Festival in mainland China,  Keren Ann and the Debussy String Quartet as part of the French May Festival in Hong Kong. 

Societe Generale engages its employees and charity partners in cultural activities.

While staff are regularly invited to take part in music and art sessions throughout the year, June 21st is the date Societe Generale celebrates its annual World Music Day, transforming offices into concert venues where professional and amateur musicians from the Bank perform and share their passion for music.
