An Evening with Gautier Capuçon
We had the pleasure of hosting over 100 attendees, comprising of distinguished clients and staff, at our first event of 2023 in Singapore, An Evening with Gautier Capuçon.
The exclusive concert with world-renowned cellist, Gautier Capuçon, took place in CHIJMES Hall, an extensively restored early Gothic-styled 19th Century chapel, which was gazetted as a National Monument in 1990.
Going beyond the financial aspect of our business, Societe Generale has a strong focus on cultural sponsorship. For us this means establishing links between the business world and the areas of classical music to develop talent and connect it to a wide audience.

Societe Generale collaborates with organisations and individuals like Gautier, who share a common goal in helping the development of talented young artists, and making classical music accessible to all audiences.
Gautier was accompanied by Yuiko Hasegawa, a talented young pianist who won the placement to perform with him for the Un Été en France (“A summer in France”) concert tour, co-produced by Societe Generale. Together, they gave a captivating performance as they played a number of pieces from some of the greatest classical music composers of all time.
