The 27th ″Musique en Périgord″ Festival
The festival "Musique en Périgord" was first presented in 1989 in the roman church at Audrix, a small village located between the Vézère and Dordogne rivers. It will celebrate its twenty seventh anniversary.
The team of the Festival has been modified but its goals remained unchanged.
The Festival is intended to introduce talented young musicians as well as recognized artists, to bring classical music to the rural environment, and to provide great music in small places. It strives to attract different audiences by offering a program of diverse musical genres and tastes, and hopes to introduce children to classical as well as to other kinds of music.
Exposing children to the joy and appreciation of good music is an important goal. Music can enrich their lives now and will also create the audience of tomorrow.
The nature and format of the program will provide an intimate environment intended to bring together the musicians ad the audiences, young and old. A welcoming, family atmosphere will characterize our Festival.
In 2015, "Musique en Périgord" festival will be presented from August 2 to August 13.
The different concerts will take place in the Roman churches of Audrix, Les Eyzies, Saint-Chamassy, the hall of Le Bugue, the auditorium of Saint-Cyprien, and the park of Campagne’s Castle. Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac will also participate in "Musique en Périgord".
