CAPF: TRIBUTE TO JEAN-MARIE DANTIN - The Conservatoire family paid homage, Friday, January 17, 2020, to its music master, Jean-Marie Dantin, who died at the age of 77 after a long illness.
As he had wished and as tradition commands for musical souls, the tribute paid to him by his last establishment, the artistic conservatory of French Polynesia, was a tribute sung and played.
Master of ceremonies for this farewell vigil, John Mairai was able to retrace, with emotion and a touch of humor bordering a lake of tenderness, the life of a passionate and fascinating man: with practice, teaching and valuing the clarinet, his favorite instrument; with the direction of ensembles and choirs but above all, with a consummate art of sharing and pedagogy.
We note the magnificent accompaniment of Isabelle Debelleix at Claviers - Isabelle who will play a composition of the son of Jean-Marie, Benoît Dantin - and Léa Picq Le Bozec on clarinet - "Petite Fleur", of Sydney Bechet - both very moved ; an emotion shared by the guitarists and singers of the traditional orchestra, and by the singers and soloists of the adult choir who gave their best for their guide.
In the crowd, many students, teachers, friends and relatives held their tears.
CAPF director Fabien Dinard reminded that Jean-Marie Dantin had worked for 13 years at Te Fare Upa Rau and that until the end, he had served the love of Music by working on the language opera project Tahitian.
Marie-Odile, his wife, and Marie, his daughter, will thank each and every one of this tribute, where beautiful poems were read, as well as an 'orero of the master of ceremonies.
Bye Bye, Maestro.
Crossing your path was a privilege. You gave us great lessons.

La passion d'enseigner et d'apprendre.
