The chamber ensemble Il Convito was founded in 2005 by the harpsichordist and organist
Maude Graton. Its repertoire consists of music ranging from the Renaissance to the 19th century, focusing on harpsichord, grand organ or fortepiano, and played on period instruments.
In 2007 the ensemble won a place on the Déclic programme supported by Cultures France and Radio France. It has already appeared at numerous festivals, including La Roque dAnthéron, Saintes, Sablé, Arques-la-Bataille, La Folle Journée de Nantes, Bach Academie Brugge Festival, Midi-Minimes in Brussels, and Musiques en Gâtine. Foreign tours have taken it to Washington, Ottawa, Sweden, and South and Central America.
