Back in 2011, the idea of creating a chamber orchestra was already anchored in the mind of Marie-France. Realizing while talking with his friends and fellow musicians that obviously there was a vacancy and a demand for this type of ensemble, it does not take more to create Omnes Musica. Marie-France founded the ensemble in 2012 with the help, later, of her friend and colleague the Spanish pianist Vanesa Santanach.
