On November 2, 2020, the Ministry of Culture announced that a mission would be given to Pascal Dumay for permanent orchestras.

Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, the Minister of Culture, was informed that he had been sentenced in 2010 for downloading and distributing child pornography.

She immediately decided not to entrust her with this mission, which was to be carried out jointly with Anne Poursin. A new announcement will be made in the coming days.
