BNP Paribas has been a faithful partner of the "La Folle Journée" music festival in the City of Nantes (France) since its inception in 1995.

This classical music festival takes place every year in the Cité des Congrès conference facilities in Nantes. The festival offers to a very broad audience a unique opportunity to spend five days in the company of music and musicians, and to enjoy a profusion of concerts. This year festival offers a scintellating musical voyage to baroque Italy of the 16th and 17th centuries.

BNP Paribas is also providing aid to schools in Western France to help their pupils to prepare this event.

BNP Paribas in partnership with Radio Classique is sponsoring a special issue of "Le Monde de la Musique", dedicated to Italian baroque music. Complimentary issues of the magazine will be given to teachers before the festival and to the publicduring the "La Folle Journée" festival.
