Lafayette Musicians...
and the Sacred music starts!

Lafayette Musicians is a classical music orchestra, composed of professional instrumentalists and singers. Created in 2022, their name honors the Marquis de la Lafayette, a French hero of the American Revolution, who was the only French person awarded honorary citizenship of the United States of America exactly 20 years ago.

Led by the French conductor Matthieu du Motier, the orchestra plays a musical repertoire focused on sacred music. With a particular zoom on early music, which is a specialty of its conductor. With a strong desire of original music restitution, musicians often playing on historic instruments. 



Our Mission

Playing Sacred music in the Dallas area, Lafayette Musicians aim to to raise the soul, by playing music that praises God and promotes freedom.

Lafayette Musicians focus on playing four categories of sacred music:

  • One dedicated to prayers: Miserere, Magnificat, Cantatas...
  • One oriented to celebrations: Masses, Requiems, Vespers...
  • One related to bible stories: oratorios telling the amazing lives of the Saints.
  • One dealing with oratorios focused on Christ’s life and passion.

The conductor: 
Matthieu du Motier

French conductor and singer, Matthieu du Motier graduated from the best music schools in France and Switzerland. He studied under Maestro Rodolfo Fischer and Richard Levitt, (Andreas Scholl voice teacher) at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.

He regularly conducts in Europe the whole symphonic repertoire (Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Dvorak...)

Matthieu Peyregne-du Motier is particularly fond of early music and works with the best European music ensembles dedicated to this musical period, among which William Christie's Arts florissants.

About the Lafayette Musicians 


Lafayette Musicians need funding to be able to make the great concerts we have planned, a reality. As a 501 (c) 3 non profit organisation, every donation will provide  a tax exemption receipt. These donations will be used of course for the musicians payment, but also to cover logistics surrounding the concerts, including the writing and printing of booklets designed to help the audience to better understand the world of sacred music and the incredible links to Faith.

The booklets

At every concert, you will receive a booklet containing translations and explanations of the musical pieces being performed. Using the booklet, you can deepen your understanding of the words being sung, the context they were written in, and their spiritual scope.

The musicians

Lafayette Musicians organize once a year auditions of professional instrumentalists and singers for next season concerts.
